The Gentle Subjugation of Humanity


Special thanks goes to Liesel of Skill Up Skillet for suggesting today’s topic!


          The Gentle Subjugation of Humanity

Waiting for centuries, biding time. 

Staging a bloodless, velvet revolution. 

Infiltrating the very fabric of society, all fell victim:

    Princes and Potentates

    Priests and Popes

    Politicians and People

Like cannibals of old, we gained power by consumption. 

  Power, but not victory. 

Now, we are enslaved: 

  Economies of nations rise and fall.

  Temples call for universal worship.

  Factions arise. 

  Blood spills.
  We cannot function.
