The virtue of charlatans

The virtue of charlatans

fog surrounds the oblivious masses,
a white smoky drug
makes the outside world seem dark —
blinded by dogma and righteousness
they move with purpose,
stepping in line
to follow the frauds
who dress fear and hatred
with pretty gold trappings,
call them Law
under the guise of salvation —
obedient pets taught not to ask questions
for fear of the sin of knowledge
