Sentimentality

Most curious
duality ... this
Sentimentality
.
Excessive tenderness,
sadness, nostalgia
corrupting modality,
distorting reality's
social edifice
.
Brain-cramping
contortion,
fierce pressure
building,
Malignity
wielding an
assault on
humanity!
.
Liars lie with
impunity
Childhood
lessons lost
Darkness
perverting civility
.
Root of irrational passions,
misplaced idealism—
This insidious,
ever-swelling
tsunami of
Sentimentality

.
