Megalomaniac

With flashing red eyes
drool upon his lip
maddened by the frenzied crowd
he stands upon the dias
awaiting his future.
Disregarding fair play rules
he raged
he frothed
he made secret deals
to undermine the truth
which all were to live by.
Enemies were made to disappear
friends were pulled in close
there is no middle ground
only two groups
one had better pray
should they find themselves
on the Enemy of the State list.
he incites riots
rage for those who disregard
his blatent lies
while holding his hands out for more…..
stroke his ego
make him feel like a god
(note the little g)
time will come when he will fall.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
