Has Kyle defiled human worth?
Clearly, the tone has been lowered.
When reducing people down to dull fluids,
Death, unfortunately fills its cup.
That sense of exposure, false pride
And almost playground form of dissention
Can manifest at some moment in a host’s
Empirical glaze, blind to trust.
A thumbs up, or thumbs down,
When signalled to a sensationalised public
Can wreck the private, as soon as
An insensible world starts to break.
This American trend has not helped.
Nor these rating fuelled new religions,
In which God’s in the green room
(Where once the paedos paraded)
Temptation surrounded, and helping
Itself to the cakes.
Beats all. It runs beneath stolen power.
False Prophets stumble.
As truth’s flavour sours
Human need forsakes taste.
