Symbols

A Poem by John Prophet

Symbol.
Power symbols.
Control symbols.
Symbols to
rally around.
Symbols,
subjugation,
control.
Control
the unaware.
Waving on
high,
those in
control.
Moving the
masses,
distraction,
slight of hand.
Waving the
flag,
the cross,
the apple.
Focus the
eyes,
leading the
charge.
Symbols as
tools, controls.
Focus the masses.
Muddle their
minds.
Control.
Control their
thoughts.
Masses moving
as one,
unison.
Mindless unison.
Symbols,
weapons of
control!

Reading this one made me think of the swastika. Originally a Hindu religious symbol, it was appropriated by the Nazis and turned into a tool of motivation and control. Things of themselves have no power, but the human mind can turn anything into a symbol, either for good or for evil. Well thought out piece.
