All the Uniforms

A masquerade of silhouettes to the untrained eye of the beholder

All moving in unison, the beat of one drum, walking one line

Arises the era of conformity in costume, disguises, deceit

Arranging and dictating direction to the Hoi Polloi

An assortment of attire prescribed to confuse

Anger within administration achieved

Assist they do not, but operate

Act, Perform, Behave

A tactical scare

All in Uniform

The Con-Troll
