03. Paper Ruled All

Passengers
by Artifex Pereo



 

Ive got a question for the hands who rule the world. Is youre ambition to watch it burn? Why, when you hold us all would you choose to decide to let our grandeur fall to ruin and demise? Bury me under a mountain of beautiful things. Consumed debris, glorious waste; ash in my mouth. We try to pay debts with our blood, buying a life gladly sold to us all. Paper made to enslave, aimed to shatter our light. Were designed to defray, collateral closure. We sow simple seeds planted deep meant to nourish our thirst. We must tend to the weeds whove spread through our garden. Why is the blood so cold, like splintered frozen ice? Sat atop gold thrones to observe death. Claw out existence from the rubble and the mire. See our backs grow strong, our hearts ache with desire. Bury me under a mountain of beautiful things. Consumed debris, glorious waste; ash in my mouth. We try to pay debts with our blood, buying a life gladly sold to us all. Paper made to enslave, aimed to shatter our light. Were designed to defray, collateral closure. We sow simple seeds planted deep meant to nourish our thirst. We must tend to the weeds whove spread through our garden. Were owned; wings cut off of such poor and unfortunate souls. Controlled by objectification of material. Bury me under a mountain of beautiful things. Consumed debris, glorious waste; ash in my mouth. Cherishing all that you want while wasting what you need. In slavery at least breath is free. Its ash in my mouth.
