Fas•cism (noun) [fa’ shizzem]
Authoritarian political ideology where all individual and societal interests are inferior to the needs of the state.
O ghosts of misery!
Louder than the whole of God,
more wordless than humiliation
breathing hard upon our backs!
Bring forth your most depraved army
over the present carnage of man;
red tongued and in the making!
Come quick under the roaring sky
and lock away hope
in your manifest gulag
of scraggly goddamned vultures!
Thrash all pleasure and goodness
over attentive hearts of dust!
Split the flesh and soul with your shadows!
Program our youth
to cleave all life of what’s left
as hordes of black-shirted assassins!
Keep watch over them
like steely eyed wolves
and stay their dissent with mild anecdote!
In time they’ll be content
to simply live another day
with wet tongue
and fearful consumption...
I detest with all my being that this pillaging horde of scoundrels has twisted the world into a sightless giant of shrieking hell!
