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.

Instagram – where I show you my Life in Motion and share quotes and such. The widget only shows my last three photographs – don’t you want to see them all?
