Blind Men

‘I never lied!’

The headlines cried

when they decided to put him away.

Thinking that all he had to do

to change the world

was break it

than remake it

the way he saw it in his head.

All turned blind eyes

pretending not to see

the nefarious plots

he put into motion

dangers that he created

until finally

it could be ignored no more.

When the wild mad man

began to cut off the fingers in the pie

it was time for him to go.

‘I never lied’

he cried aloud

‘not once did I never speak true.’

And were one to go back

and read all the papers

they would read…..

he had announced

each and every one of his plans

they were just too blind to see.
