blinders

BLINDERS

you told me to
renounce the news
you told me to
put my blinders on

so i eloped the bells
of emergency
and built a fortress
impervious to the
shrapnel of scheme

they can call but
my cell rings six feet
under the rains of fear

they can scream but
the weight of
laser focus silences
their anguish

they can knock
try to sell me a side
but my tribe of elephants
set fire to the doors

sure, I still
dodge bullets
but for now thank you
the blinders are working
I can even
sometimes see
