Power Of Placebo



satin clad placebos shall slide easily

designated pleasing for the lord

they shall slip on tongue, deliver what is wanting

cure disturbance easier than the sword

they shall purvey hope to order with avowals

incantations swallowed with coarse grain

they shall serve a purpose better than the real thing

an artefact as powerful as pain

numbered they shall be with hidden figures

a muscular massage around the spine

though truth will hurt and heal, it’s not forgotten

effect of silken words assures all’s fine

forever they shall be within the black bag

doled with ease, appeasing, fears allay

shall there be a cure for feigned sincerity

a poisoned pill they use to have their way

  1. I’ve swallowed a few of those in my life momus…sugar coated blasphemy’s of all types, especially the political ones. You know, the one’s they say are ‘for our own good’ 😦
