Poisoned

You took an idea &
sowed it across a blighted field.
Could they comprehend
the ground itself was poisoned?
Most were clueless.
So few in fact you knew
you could rely on ignorance —
how man so easily turns on his fellow.
The sower simply put
more seeds down
to generate divison
hid reality underground
deep where humans rarely look —
within the heart itself.
Now half the world is dying
yet you convinced the fool —
legions of them — to imagine
it was caused by something else.
How clever!
