Red Carpet

Like the Emperor

lacking in any clothes

in any wit

he prances

and preens upon the world stage.

Loud and crass

wearing diamond blasts

thinking all will play his game.

He struts upon the carpet red

never noticing the stains or tears.

He sits upon the dais

looking up in wonder at those….

those he has spurned

those he has slighted

those who eat on gold

who drink from goblets of sterling silver

never realizing how they laugh at this toad.
