Sophist Skills

As the words draw me out
From behind barriers tall
Stairs ascend on high
Climbing fear lest I fall

Visions brought for your sake
Guttural chakra now wakes
Labyrinth starts uncoiling
Opening words recoiling

Your heart lays open bare
Imposter says he cares
Serpentine sophist skills
His words of venom still kill

Tightly hold on to your shield
Be seduced not and yield
This warning I know is late
Still we are our own fate
