Blight Of Insanity
There's a rumor spreading far and wide,
an ill nation taken on a toxic ride.
Those without a mind preach stern and loud,
violent toward those who stand out from the crowd.
Hive minds and a pack mentality
lead the blind to perpetual fatality.
Lies and hate burned in their hearts,
spew from their lips like poison-soaked darts.
They make claims about the "good" of their cause,
then stand there to wait for praise and applause.
When confronted with truth they don't want to hear,
they swell up and well up, explode into tears.
Their need for acceptance and position of power
force them to take pride in the sickness of this hour.
They are the blight on humanity,
the embodiment of raw insanity.
They're growing in number, faster than can be counted.
They're infection is spreading... can it be surmounted?
