On Your Knees

Another of the 48 Laws of Power by Robert Green as a writing prompt.



Law 27: Create a Cult: Play on People’s Need to Believe

it can’t be free

the more it costs

the more it’s worth

it will be within reach of all

through a window


nothing to hide

nothing to give away

time is as good as money

spread the word

that’ll be enough

spread it far and wide

stand on street corners

yell in basements

cut through the illusion

of now   here    reality


it can be freeing

to cut yourself loose

of all that holds you

to your ideals

try ours instead

they are built on

ancient tried and proven realities

they wouldn’t last

if they weren’t better than

what you think you think

that’s why they aren’t free

they aren’t cheap


surrender   give in   give up

it is pointless to resist

this tide has been washing the world clean

before there even was a world


in your heart you know

this is the one true way

the ultimate loss of self

why waste time resisting

we’ll be coming for you

whether you like it or not

so pay up now

or regret it later

we can wait

as it is written

so it will be


admit it

you like

to be on your knees

say please


bless you


Like my pictures? I post lots on Tumblr
