Dark Fated

Sonorous
voice rising
proclaiming
greatness
love
life
liberty
justice
not for all…..
shackles
mace
pain
for those deemed a threat
deemed unfit
incapable of following orders
wanting only to have voices heard
from time ago
still ignored.
Ignorance is not an excuse
lackluster approach
no longer willing are they
to dance to the tune
maddened despot
frothing
spittle spray
braying
no one loves me.
Stand upon the pulpit
hands gesturing
spouting inanities
lies falling
deranged lips
a dream world
lived in
ruled by
tyranny
slowly seeping into reality.
