Subversive Elements

Subversive elements rip apart

Essential truths

Rules get rolled in the back alleyways

Of a rigid mind

The terror

Reflection of the shattering of social niceties

Wasn’t real, after all

Dreamt up

Based on false assumptions

Fears and dreams

Subversive elements started to creep in

Ninja doubts

Troubled truths

Collide with a peal of bells

That are discordant and out of tune

Reflecting the cognitive dissonance

We endure

Trying to make sense of the chaos

Subverting the lies we agree to tell

Pretending that insanity is normal

Putting up with the fabrications

Untruths

Of an off-kilter world

  1. David, brilliant. Like the cognitive dissonance quite a bit.

  2. Thanks – it is hard to make sense of this world, some days in particular seem to be even crazier than what we’ve come to expect.

  3. ‘Pretending that insanity is normal
