Patterns Patterns on the Wall

 Patterns patterns on the wall
 Humpty Splattered from the Fall
 Broken Shells are cloaked in veils
 Of masked mouths in modern sprawl  
 Twisting tales and telling lies
 And pointing Fingers at the I's
 We build the burden of our own demise
 Fill the garden with Sown Reprise
 With complicit cowardice we cast the Die
 And wait for Fu(h)ror to Rise the Tide
 Oh sweet Souls who hide enDemic Panic
 Beneath the ruse of false compassion  
 We Wove this World and Play within It
 Keyholes In Cells we Formed and Fashioned
