Banal Acquisition

Once upon a time
the way all fairy tales start
prince comes
princess goes
flamboyant man
simpering woman
they deserve one another.
Sit through
another grotesque dinner
japes made
feelings shredded
believing
this is reality
chin on hand
glaring over wine cup
sneering
omg
this is the best of them?
Have you heard
how I will save
the country
the economy
everything
god
worship at my feet
marry me
no one else can beat.
Have you 
never seen
curled lip
derision at words
falling
disgust laced
too stupid to realize.
Parade
a’fore me
measure of men
jesters
jackasses
so sick am I
of
strength of stupidity
let them rule
crowed at me.
Shake my head
must make a choice
damn tedious
listening to all the boasting
savior naught
sycophants lie
too bad
you cannot see that.
