'The quietness' was a euphemism for laudanum, a powerful and addictive sedative which was used to subdue babies and children until as recently as the 1960s. The more you read about it's almost ubiquitous presence and the hold it had over its users, the more it sounds like modern popular media...


Catch yourself a penny's worth
and from the wave-bound ship alight.
Maintain the habit right from birth
and keep your field of vision slight.

Take your mind away from every
inclination thought instils.
Focus on the vial and it shall
answer prayers of latent will.
It lays you down, a child sedate
inside a crib with hidden bars.
It draws your gaze up to the ceiling
pointing out fictitious stars.

And in time you'll come to see
those hollow points of light.
You'll never question if you're free,
or ever doubt your sight.

Shrink and wither youth's unrest.
Fight expires before it's time,
but don't you mourn the childhood tests;
a tranquil hand commits no crime.
