Iron Clad Laughter


Digital Evolution of
Laughter upon steel
Well-meaning
Counselors
Poisoned
By psychology

Intents
Of justice
Distorted
By interpretation
Cast to the winds
Cast to the rocks

Mandates
Of jurisdiction
Pulling off
The outer layers
Orders incomplete
Life misunderstood

Who shall free me
Of the social confinement
Of idealistic fissures
Of broken reality
Of split perceptions
Of a split mind

A mind divided
Between
The best for one
And the rights
Of the demanding
Of an adult baby's mind

Bowing
To the narrow
To the metal laugh
A laugh with no sound
No sound of joy
No sound of pleasure

Bowing
To the mind
Without comprehension
Of intent
Or meaning
Of gesture

I bow to the Greater Good
The Greatest God
I relinquish my rights
For the larger group
I forget my future
For His plans
