Deliberately Omitted

People are relying on prime time news,
For any hints from the latest reported incidents...
They should be aware about that threaten to come,
To affect their lives with unavoidable changes.

People are numbing their minds with alcohol.
Prescribed medications and consultations...
With appoinments kept to visit,
Their personal physicians.
In the hopes something said in privacy,
Will provide them a remedy to escape from reality.

People try weed and crack and mainline their delusions,
For quick release to appease their fantasies.
Today even Mother Nature has been accused,
For being a terrrorist.
'We have nothing left.
Mother Nature and Her 'allies' came storming through here,
To nearly scare us all to death.
Now we are being threatened to have our entitlements taken away.
And we wont have that.
We must protect ourselves with weapons.
We must uphold our insanity and savage ways.'

To say people have become crazed by innuendo alone,
Is to observe with attentive focus as to what has been condoned.
There are more laws created to restrict what people should not do,
Than there are those celebrating the gift of life they've been given.

People are relying on prime time news,
For any hints from the latest reported incidents...
They should be aware about that threaten to come,
To affect their lives with unavoidable changes.

And these addicting activities should stop to make one think,
Which part of their lives to live is of their own choosing?
And among those other parts that are obviously unconscious,
Who controls the doing of it at their expense.
And why have they allowed with 'consciousness',
For any of this to go against their wishes?
IF...
There are any claims left to make,
From those who have belief that 'someone' still represents...
The best of their interests.
And...
IF it is insisted this remains true,
Competence and accountability aren't the only factors...
Deliberately omitted from their 'prioritized' agendas.
