Muzzled

The world is a large place

Grows smaller by the hour

The core condensed

As our orbit expands

Rhetorical flourishes speak of nothing

And land ends at the crease of the map

Frogs on a hotplate

To kittens in a blender

Misinformation expands

While memory contracts

Contrary speech hate

Return to sender

Easy substitution

For inconvenient fact

The gnostics cry from the grave

Leaving no question unposed

While still short on answers

Your prescription

Like conscription

Laxatives for stifled minds

Prophylactics for unclean thought

Cause for a day

Until new victims cultivate

Burn all the Savior myths

Your Messiah is the state

The reward is nothing

Inheritance spent
