Upside Down

Put on your rose, rosette, rosey red

Glasses,

Bow your head, divine inglet, and

Submit,

Sway to the tune, with minds on the

Moon,

Silly masses, prized chattle in classes,

Tidy

Labels, lies, alibies written in the cyber

Sky,

Spiralling away, removable ink for tasty

Pi,

An endless circle, trending hate, vogue

Debates,

Raging shame, blame is the game,

Blinded

By weird science, minus empathy,

Rinse,

And repeat to remove all doubt and

Reason,

Season the vegan, gas the cow and

Swallow

Crow, you’re in the know, CeCe

Nothing

Now, freedom is an idea, intrusion of

Illusion

Evaporating, once birthed into the

Structure

Of man, the human plan to bend your

Will,

Your mind, open your third eye, glimpse

Sunshine,

End the pain, break invisible chains, or

Remain

Alone, adorned in roses, rosey rosettes

Blooming,

Affording pride with thorny pricks and a

Sigh,

Slipping into a parody of upside down

Goodbyes.
