Bitter Sweet Words

Embellished, shined, publicized

Display put on their empty core

Listen! You must abide laws. (Seize!)

The narrative of freedom, a screen.

Adore something you know nothing about

Honey like texture of sweat and sour

Fools your taste of flavor, makes you devour

Your truest nature, freshness, born greatness.

Smell their petals of fragrant flowers.

Hear their robust voice, a rallying cry

Rejoice in their sweet flavor of right.

Layers and layers on top, engineered

Made to seem bright, a call to arms. (To our demise!)

Heed the bitter sweet words

Their sentient nature,

Their abomination of truth.
