Clown of all Time

It began innocently enough
all thought it was a game
there is no way
voters are too smart
they would not believe that creep anyway.
Commercials abound
tearing down
eroding the very foundation
on which they stood upon.
Clamoring for war
upon silent victims
snarling at the damage done
by enemies real and imagined
until
suddenly everyone
who disagrees
is now an enemy of the state.
he became the face of a nation
which was torn down
rent apart
remade into a haven for some
whilst becoming a nightmare
for the rest of the populace.
