We Must Have Order

The language is shifting again.
Inhuman behaviours get normalized.
Science stands in for god.
One signals their virtue by way of conformity,
A cute swatch of fabric covering a petrified face.

Blend in.
Masks make right.
Amplify the rhetoric.
It is dangerous to oppose.
Do not allow your individuality to emerge.
You might get sick.
They might come for you instead.

Goosestepping off the sidewalk,
Two metres apart.
Avert your eyes.
The exposed faces are the enemy.

We must have order.

We Are What We Worship.
