Daily Prompt: Control

The iron grip of control
has begun to shift, those
at the top scramble to find
ways of maintaining it. Only
they manage more and more
each day to dissolve the
suspension cable that held is in
their grips for┬áto long. For that’s
what we were, suspend, believing
they had our best interest at heart.
But when looking further withing
we find a charred thing, and at the
root what keeps their machine
running is the parasite of greedy.
Fueling them to move forward, but
fuel is starting to run out because their
control has started slip between their
fingers just like the means they use
to keep up under their spell.
