Bread and Circuses

By Expotera
February 28, 2017

Now that no one buys our votes, the public has long since cast off
its cares; for the people that once bestowed commands, consulships,
legions, and all else, now meddles no more and longs eagerly for
just two things — bread and circuses. ~ Juvenal

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t turn away
you know deep down
you’ve got something to say
And with each night the darkness comes
and it consumes us all
We are all plagued with death
It is “the Fall”
As we lay dying here
the bread & circuses they entertain
we live through them
and they through us
they are the virus in our veins
the one that pushes us to run from the light
and forces us to hide
The one that feeds us lie after lie
and says we should ignore
the void inside

- Dena Lumley

The evil was not in bread and circuses, per se, but in the
willingness of people to sell their rights as freemen for full
bellies and the excitement of the games which would serve
to distract them from the other human hungers which bread
and circuses can never appease. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
