RESISTANCE

Batteries run low and life flickers to fade
Where are all the good times
When the reckoning’s begun.

Blame the news on TV
The messages reaching out to touch
But blame must lie, by the side.

Talking on needs or wants
Beyond the pale who decides
Taking and never giving greed the deceiver.

More, ever more or even less
Plugging the gap where conscience tore
The life from self-respect.

There are no answers 12 strong and true
But just an election in which to partake
Voting for deception to spend another lifetime.

When the curtain falls what’s to see
Out in the darkness beyond the lights
There was and always is a void.

Buying memories designed to fulfil
Playing with answers to problems forgotten
Shouting from the rooftops – all is saved.

Never brooking the decision, that makes
The difference to lives very clear
Rejection no protection so no justification.

Carry on much as before
Paying out for sentimentality
For hatred jealousy and mistrust.

Pawn the beliefs for payment tomorrow
Forget who requested the tune
But piper calls to claim what’s due.

Now its too late, getting drawn ever in
But sleep the rejuvenator forget the disease.
