The All-Consuming Eye

i'm living in a half world
contrived by puppetmasters
where everything i say 
is a lie 
to someone

a figment of the world's 
i slip thru unnoticed
like a thief

to steal my identity back
from false gods
who seek to consume all 
that their eyes can see

there are no exits
and no escape
but you can live 
a double life

embody paradoxes
hide behind analogies
smile on cue
and no one will ever know
a puzzle unsolved


a thousand masks to fool
the hunters
with their big guns
and massive war machines

they miss the falling leaves
the flowing stream 
children playing

hide your vision
while you may
with cunning and deception

lest the hunters come
and steal your children away
