I believe there is a conspiracy ongoing
involving all of us.
I don’t know when or where it began,
nor who initiated it.
They occult from me their talks
just I approach one of them.
It seems to me a stealthy fellowship,
a strange one, of saints and demons,
angels and warlocks, even goblins.
They congregate to rule all people,
fighting for our souls, one by one.
Someone has been told it is a caste
that rids humanity by wrecking
and leaves it alive on the road,
leavening us before ultimate battle.
