False Memory (Free verse) by nentwined
Yesteryear’s good Was ever facade No deep noble roots But shallow bright sod A lawn for the few The Eloi dressed well While liminal Morlocks Fed on their souls And the rest of the world Was quietly bled Not even a footnote To account for the dead. // join me on collab — https://madewithcollab.com/collab/Wx0481w060p

You call it "false memory" and I hope it is. Otherwise it's a morbid, but uniquely phrased, look back. Perhaps a mind like mine; it can go either way.
