mesmerized – #SoCS

baffled
by blind believers
who permit power of “personality”
and suspicious suggestions
to rule reality.

lemmings don’t really follow
each other
off cliffs

but most accept it
as Truth
because enough people
said it
enough times

mesmerized
by the mesmerized

Mesmer was a bit crazy,
but some of it worked.

he knew what he was doing

sometimes;

Modern-day Mesmers
know what they are doing,

too.

They just don’t seem to be trying
to
help
anyone
get better.

Our minds
Our hearts
Our souls

containers for others
to fill while we are
under their spell?

snap out of it.


#SoCs is “Stream of Consciousness Saturday”. Write, write, write – no editing.

The prompt for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday was “container.”
