Subsequent landing

Subsequent landing

Maybe it’s emergent chaos
Struggling to form a cloud
Large enough to lift off

Taking enlightened souls
Away from ground level
Rising to be plucked

Brought down to Earth
Browbeaten, tapping out
Counting failed attempts

Littering our shared mind
Ridiculed, assassinated
Generally ignored.

But why would they
Sacrifice themselves
Unable to harness power

Wield it openly in public
Touting their transparency
So truthful yet so trapped

Another challenge ahead
A heavy duty assumption
Work to narrow the spread.
