The Addiction of the Affliction

 The addiction of the affliction
The herds adore the subscription...
The feeling of belonging
The unveiling of the wrongs
And the stealing of Rights
Left to the rest of us
To test the mettle of the
Hurried hush 
That gets the best of us
Wearing the masks with 
Unabashed pride
To announce the terror
One feels inside
As cherished illusions die
What is the sound of one jaw
What do we make 
Of the digital mapping
Of mitochondrial maze
As the players line up
To take part in the craze
Enslaved by the Play
Of the Grey Lines
On the chessboard 
Of the black and White Lie
