This False Dawn:

A warrior in a non existent war
Afraid to sleep, afraid to wake
In the world but not of it
I am the edge of darkness
inter-dimensional interference
Wouldn’t some say it was the work of Satan?
Up at dawn I embrace
The bright morning
I don The Mask Of Sanity

And enter the belly of the beast
And on the tube I read about
The latest greatest
media orchestrated witch hunt
Which in the end will drive us all
Into the arms of revolutionaries.
because that is a measure of your worth, they say
Someone had done a terrible, terrible thing
manipulated idealism, orchestrated misery

they isolate it from the grand sweep of history.
And their shrunken world is divided
Into the victors and the vanquished
This was once echoed in my own worldview
I do not think this anymore
They will never love me
And they never will
But I no longer crave the approval
Of the world. It is not a prize worth fighting for

I do not know why I am here
But I did not give myself life
so I have no right to take it away.
Our duty is to hold the line
and in comes the cavalry.  you’re a bit late.
Too many moving targets to be eliminated
I do not view the world through a simplistic paradigm
left over from the French revolution.
symptoms of an enfeebled society.

It takes courage to live, not to die
Love, money, popularity
Mean nothing to me
I am unworldly
And always will be
I know this now
And I embrace it
Fully and without
Resentment
