The Treacherous Illusion


Progress, growth, expansion:

Cycles, only that.

They never last, just grow and die,

Their concepts unreliable,

Their goals so pliable

They ‘rat you out,’

Attack you back

Unless you are prepared,

Scared underneath it all,

Aware of what a pattern leads to.


Take heed of trends –

They end.

Did someone say once long ago

To keep your lantern lit? It’s so.


The treacherous illusion

May say all is fine.

See each headline, every fact as sign –

Then go forth bravely.
