avalanche…

avalanche

crowds
gathered
stopping to listen
to some sideshow
politico preacher
proclaiming
it’s
all
their fault
the
fill-in-the-blank group
selected
throughout history
anytime mankind
has needed
a scapegoat for
society’s incompetencies
fall guys
sent into the wilderness
ladened with the sins
of fearful people
unwilling sacrificial lambs
blamed for everything
from
poverty
to
erectile dysfunction
and
though
this dogma
has been heard
before
for some
damn reason
humankind
falls for it again
and
again
refusing to acknowledge
individual responsibilities
for failure
giving power
to
a politico priest
like
an antichrist
delivering mankind
to the abyss
of ignorance
by stirring
mob behaviour
