Richard

something is in the air.
evil has long existed
but now?
now,
it feels as if
it is truly about to raise its wicked head
and strike.
and where are all the heroes?
all the people who claimed
to care?
i’ll tell you secret;

there was never any heroes.

ever.

we’ve been fed comfortable lies
and now
our bellies are bulging
with self-righteousness and decadence.

we were the heroes
and we traded our liberties
for acceptance and safeties.

we deserve everything that is coming to us.

Live Not By Lies

And he who is not sufficiently courageous even to defend his soul—don’t let him be proud of his “progressive” views, don’t let him boast that he is an academician or a people’s artist, a merited figure, or a general—let him say to himself: I am in the herd, and a coward. It’s all the same to me as long as I’m fed and warm.” –Alexander Solzhenitsyn, “Live Not By Lies”
