Globalization

Systematic engineering of chromosomes
Resultant DNA undefinable
In the new world order
Of the Brave New World
Globalization and pandemics
Created then losing control
Forced reality of the super-indoctrinated
Proclaiming the new normal as normal
Man-made permutations
Of inflicted isolation
Self-imposed manifestations of fear
And hyper-technology
A gathering storm of futurism
Beheld in the eyes of the enlightened
