Artist Defined the Era, Once Upon a Time

by Ruhig

escape from the dark

Sun’s rays fade
My eyes
Sigh
At the sight of many
Shifting to shades of grey
Darkness encompasses
Haunted fruitless frames
That wither
In wishes
Shadow chains constrain
Man made definitives
Plastered on plasmas
Printed in periodicals
Once of highest esteem
Riddled with demeaning
Dumby-down-effect
Placate masses
With minimum education
Reducing individual self
To attain the billboard standard
Forgetting in material
Race
We have the power
Not appointed politicians
Oh where did my philosophers go?
Shackled
Chained
Silenced
In a second
Before free
Thought can rise
To see the truth
Of decaying Democracy
Over the decades
