I'm neither

    puppeteer
    nor marionette

        Brilliant idiot
        nor madman

the battle’s ragin

   and soldiers
   fakin dem dead
   

               who you gonna trust . .  ?
              
                when you can't run
                             fast enough


t o    e s c a p e   t h e    m a t r I x


                                  imprisoned
                                in some sort
                 of concocted entropy

 
w h e r e  d e g r e e   o f   d i s o r d e r

                        only increases with time

 

                   your face in the dust                             and someone’s yelling

                                Y o u   M u s t  .  !

            
       before it turns to mud
       the blood mixed in

             before it hardens
       into clay for the kilns

 

C h o k i n  .   !

can't cough hard enough
to dislodge the discomfort
                from your throat

            one leg in the boat
       the other in the water

 
 y o u ’ r e    s h a r k    b a i t  .  . !


         the anchor weighs
          around your neck
          

                          s a l t    w a t e r

    e n t e r s    y o u r    l u n g s

 
                    the smell of fear

                   its taste
                   its fervour
                   its addiction

           seeps through every pore 


                                             l i k e
