Poetry: Wonderland, The Alternate

The insurgent who attacks the foundation of our government, our constitution, our ethics, and our morals from within is able to fool some of the people all of the time. 
Nearly, not fully, one-half of the country follows, trusts, and loves, like sheep on their way to the slaughterhouse, the man who states loud and clear he is the only one who can unify the country in the midst of a "crisis" (that does not exist, by the way). 
What does this insurgent hold over the heads of the governmental party claiming him that makes them terrified to oppose him, even though some know they should?

They wonder, never ask,
“Are suspense thrillers your thing?
Can you suck the rhetoric of hate?
Will you honor, obey, and keep

Your mouth shut?” On your knees
Is how you are seen,
Taking a vow of inequality.
On a road trip into alt reality

Where you end up becoming another self.
Did you think you had value?
You don’t. You never had worth.
Can you face that?

A psychedelic trip;
Don’t you know Alice is illegal?
Stay away from that mushroom!
Here, drink this; it’s spiked

With one or two roofies.
Hey, you’ll never know/remember
The geopolitics this liquid
Ecstasy will slam down your throat.

Forty-one called; it’s three a.m.
Find your own place
On the greasy, orange pole
Who presents himself

As the most important person.
Put up a fight—get attacked.
Watch words twist and fall
Down the rabbit hole.
