Obscured in a position of servitude

Maintain the well-being of those upon they wish demise

Living amongst a population to which they succumb with personalities miscued

 

Their own worst enemy under prying eyes

Professional apathy of enemies to themselves makes a cultural nemesis for their brothers

Restrained from their performance and blamed for failing the wise

 

Severed link between mountain and abyss straining to hold their link

Draining substances into their pores, estranged families, and self extirpation

Vermin ascend the mountain; the guards stare into the abyss they sink
