Mindless Society

I.
We are the pitiful nation
We are the shameful nation
Falling together
Heads filled with air. Alas,
Our empty minds, when
We gossip around
Are ignorance and stupidity
As the breeze clears trees
Or children reading Dickens
In our mindless pit

Face without eyes, heart without beats,
Frozen solid, thoughts stand still;

Thoughts who have rammed
With ignorant minds, to the past’s brilliance
Remember them - for without them- we are nothing
Mindless hearts, but only
As the pitiful nation
The shameful nation.

II.
Minds I would not want to combat
In life’s inequitable dealings
Idiocy never fails to emerge:
Here, the truth in society
Is brought forth into the sunlight
Here, is the leaves falling
And society is
In the trees leaves
Falling harder and faster
Than a waterfall.

Let me fall no closer
To the mindless pit
Let me hide my face
From the ignorant masks
Folly, vulgar, obsessive
In a society
Where this behavior is seen normal
No brilliance –

Ignorance and brilliance meet
And it is over

III.
This is the new land
This is the vacant ground
Here the dim-witted images
Are shown, here they collect
The implication of stupidity
Under the roof of parliament.

Is society like this
In all regions of our world
Falling all at once
At the moments that we
Need help the most
Minds that processed
Ideas that struck the world.

IV.
The pupils are not here
There are no pupils here
In the society of famished minds
In this sunken society
This broken vessel of our lost hearts

In this final encounter
We frighteningly converse
And avoid instruction
Together under the steeple

Mindless, useless
Until the pupils return
As the everlasting thoughts
Linger on the distance
Of our past and future
The wishes only
Of the brilliant.

V.
London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down,
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair Lady.

The infrastructure around us
Is falling down, falling down
And the Reality
Of the collapse is starting
To wash away
Wood and clay will wash away

The sturdiness of a brick
Will not even stand the weight
That society is bearing upon us
Here is where the shadow falls
On bricks and mortar
Bricks and mortar will not stay

The strength of metal
Cannot fasten the falling
The falling of the infrastructure
The swaying, back and forth
Of society, back and forth
Iron and steel will bend and bow

Build it up with silver and gold,
Silver and gold, silver and gold,
Build it up with silver and gold,
My fair Lady.
