They wrap themselves in different disguises

a spiritual cloth

My paranoia is very real

because their presence

conceals an ugliness

like a veil

shielding

false purity

the worst betrayal

they speak with authority, but they have none

a blank face

like a shield

for a two-dimensional

understanding

that can’t stand on its own

the rules won’t liberate them

they are a creative rule creator

hemming themselves in

with deceptive cloth

forcing the law

at the top

where there is more power

but less freedom.
