The New Dark Ages


Pollution, retribution,

endless problems, few solutions.

We watch our souls regressing,

as our minds seek evolution.


Starvation, hostile nations,

people pray for their salvation,

while each day brings the world

one step closer to devastation.


Strategic defense, higher rents,

global leaders exude incompetence,

but still the people follow

ignoring common sense.


Ideologies, philosophies,

fanatical theologies,

strive to bring the accepted order                 

crumbling to its knees.


Gilded cages, violent rages,

we're victims of the war ‘progress’ wages,

as we plunge ourselves ever deeper

into the New Dark Ages.
