Deceptive Means

What will happen when truth finally descends?
How will it be fought againgst...
When weakened lies lose all defense.
What will happen...
When fences built have lost making sense?
And fingers once pointed,
Now hide eyes that squint!
Squirming in groups squatting...
Grouped and squinched by evidence!

And how will a ruptured mind define normal?
When all things presented,
Had standards that came formal!
None of this to them,
Began or seemed abnormal at all...then!

Until something bit the architect...
And all plans unfinished crept to a stall!
Creating crumbling walls,
And the sight of followers crawling.
Through the sound of thunderous applause.
As deafening cheers heightens the fears of deceivers...
And the stares from those who appear quite appalled!
Cementing all exits,
For those who chose deceptive means to live!
