Crazed Mentalities

Crazed mentalities,
Given entitled rights to believe...
They can continue to display,
Appetites of hatred and division...
Done to do as they please.
And...
Defend the doing of it unauthorized.
Although 'suggested' to be legalized.
Should leave no one less surprised.
Or left to become horrified.
By what they have allowed to let spread.
Untightened nuts are beginning to loosen,
In all kinds of heads to go unidentified.
No matter the race, color of creed.
Religious belief or political affliliation.

And with a madness that has been fed,
To digest manufactured beliefs...
Of a superiority over others preached.
That will reach a solution to decrease,
An increasing of crazed mentalities...
Armed with weapons seeking to eliminate,
The cause and reason behind why their minds...
Have become infected by a disease.
This epidemic has signs of being homegrown.

A disease condoned,
Many have come to feed their addictions upon.
On a daily basis but can not face.
Or will find a cure to erase,
Images of themselves they refuse to see.
Nor accept but quick to reject the reflection,
That has become too obvious to ignore...
What has been revealed.
And long ago to have been diagnosed,
On both sides of a fence...
Where too many have crowded to sit.
Pointing everywhere else.
While defending pretentions and hidden intentions,
To satisfy more of what they crave.
Ultimately to deny their own self destruction.
But thrilled some are,
Of the possibility to return back to the age...
To throw their stones from caves.
