kokopelle: Black Cat (cat black)
“In The End” was prompted by the comment made by by Rufas Edmisten (Deputy Chief Counsel, Watergate Committee): “Sometimes impressions are killers, almost as much as much as the actual.”


In The End

Wear the masks at your peril
they’re for play, that’s the plan
make a point to scare the rubes
while there’s risk you’ll confront

today’s dreams may not last
of power gained, the earth your own
it’s all borrowed from below
from the one taking souls

presentation is the door
revelation of what’s inside
even as the acts are mimed
they promise what will surely come

the sharpest knives are not seen
seeming dull when waved about
slicing wounds upon the self
cutting deep to spill the blood

this is the risk of mockery
embracing acts most condemn
though the line is not crossed
the stakes are same in the end.
