When the Opposite to Heavy is Heavier

Is when the heaviest lie is presented as a truth. And here it comes on a wave after wave after wave of waves. In being coerced into prayer, the question to ask of any god is – what weighs so heavy on ordinary people? It is the wave. The ideation of a wave. A voice of the wave. And it is because there is no ebb when others witness the charisma of a flow. Remember when superlatives represented order, and when a sense of certainty could weigh itself against the most insidious deception? These days, a show of imagined hands can choose who is better than the best god. It is an extreme decision-making.
