AWAKE IN THE FLOCK

Oh but the masses were blind, not awakened in time because the wool was pulled down & enveloped their minds. Lead by an amalgamation of shepherds with hubris crying wolf, when really disease was eminent traveling on hoof. A disease so vile it may effect all faiths when we turn into sheep and allow them to take and guide us to the cliffs edge and call on the quakes. One sheep asked wont we fall, could we slip on this death-laden trip, we cannot oppress the ocean whose waves may be fit? Back called the shepherd, were too great we belong we created boats plus moons we've walked on. Loud voices were heard and we looked to the left, saw adjacent herds calling saying please watch your step. You can drown other cultures, you can paint them a skew convince your heard that there evil and cruel, you can eat all their grass but when dirt's all that's left the erosion of paths may collapse your empire and drown out your blahs! Well our leader stood bold and he called us by name, he talked of our god and of our great crusades, breathe deep and then step till theirs no soil left, after that we can float and have no need for breath! We can do this ourselves no need for foundation after all we're of god and his powerful nation, so we walked proudly forward and attempted to skew any fear or bother towards the ocean so blue. Well we walked and we walked and walked without looking, no idea what terror our footsteps invoking. One by one step by step we walked off the cliff littering the beach with less innocent BLOOD... The end of an empire, The last of a many? Is it this that bibles great verses sum plenty? Could we miss the whole point and be left in the dust? When our shepherd was arrogant with tyranny’s thrust & pushed us to fight in what our hearts don't believe? War’s got us falling like the tallest of trees!
