Free thinking

Free thinking is synonymous
With a deeper consciousness
It's hard to be notorious
In a city that's anonymous

So they will be vainglorious
With endless broken promises
All heroes are autonomous
In a city that's incompetent

For we are not homogeneous
And this is no necropolis
There must be a watchfulness
In a city that's provocative

We are not magnanimous
And this is not metropolis
A body's a sarcophagus
In a city that's monotonous

So beware my cocky confidence
As you assert your dominance
I am of the populace
Of a city that's now
Ominous

Do not go gently
