Another day, another plague,
murder hornets on their way.
Daily lies desensitize--
incessant terror normalized.
All hope seems but a distant dream
drifting away with each deceit.
We've come to know a curse of old--
only misery will be all we'll know.

Another year, a new host of fears
to keep us fed as death draws near.
Preoccupied as we die--
wildfires blot out the sky.
Clowns at the helm overwhelm,
inundate, indoctrinate, buy and sell.
Told to forego all you know
by those who thrive
when your eyes are closed.

O, what could have been--
what could have been
has been and will be again.

So long to linear time--
fate's not a straight line,
it was all inside my mind.

Murder hornets
swarming borders and seas.

Ever looming
a new brewing disease.

All the figures' names change
but the game stays the same--
the waves erase the faces.

How many lives lost?
How many lives
does one man's ego cost?

Abyss yawning
as the new day's dawning.
