Welcome to this place
This happy little abode
Nestled between here and there
Nowhere and someplace.

Dark skies constantly loom overhead,
Shrouding the land below.
So come on, come on, come on,
Follow us down the rabbit hole.

Fair warning, though:
Once you enter, you never come back.
Lose your individuality here.
Let the Flow make the decisions for you.

What? It's fine? Okay, come on then.
Come on come on come on.
Follow and obey, as we strip you down.
Don't squirm or make a sound.

We'll play with you first,
Touch your body, splice your holes,
Dress you up real nice, ah yes!
Now you're the perfect plaything.

Go out now, deary,
Walk the talk, speak the show,
Deceive others and learn to lie,
Blacken the blue skies for us!

And when you're ready,

We'll teach you all you need to know,

But will we, really?

That's not for your ears, hon.
What's this crazy wackadoo poem focused around? Two things: the madness of society and the double speak which plagues the unfortunate people who live within and on the fringes of it. This isn't to say that all people who live in or out of society's boundaries are hypocrites; we're all guilty in one way or another.

Rather, it's when someone says that they don't accept society's standards and are disgusted by them, and yet they adhere to them anyway when they're (the standards) dressed up as "being against them."

I'll leave the similes and metaphorical crazy talk to your imaginative minds.

I love this, despite not fully understanding it even after reading your description. You can tell you're a smart person, and your line in the description, "This isn't to say that all people who live in or out of society's boundaries are hypocrites; we're all guilty in one way or another." makes it clear you're a pretty level-headed person too. Need to read it again some time with a clearer head (getting over the flu/cold). =)

This poem was, to me, more of a melting pot than all the other ones, so some of the meanings might splurge together or not add up after another read-through.

Thanks! I hope you get better soon! :)
