SHADOW PUPPET
(2/2/18)

dancing

prancing

to the light
of society's
sun

are you
not
the precious one?

your actions
are seen
on a civilized
screen

muting
your atrocities
by more
acceptable means

you should
slow

feel the wall
upon which
you are shown

understand
that while
you move

the world
stays mostly
the same

and when
you are gone

there are
billions
of silhouettes
to take your
place

best
to keep
low

leave
the glare
to more capable
opacities

we all
become one
in the
dark
