We have but a second before the rest of the world intrudes,

the mind told me.  Vacancy signs will soon be erected in place

of total surrender but don’t be fooled, all is not safe.  We have

so much to lose in a nation of sheep, free thought and will is

at war again amongst the natives.  Focus on the facts, keep

your emotions in check and use me, the mind proffered me.

All that is shiny is not always good and all that is given is

not free.  Don’t lose yourself amongst the herd, watch out

for the wolves and strive to keep watch over those with little

inclination to protect themselves.  Once the world has reached

us, all is certain to implode.
