And He Shall be Named…..Emperor

Slow it began
subtle shading
more grey
less black
less white
imperceptible
when realized
too late it shall be.
Justice
misplaced
lies
manipulation of truth
gross over-reaching
abandonment of fundamental law
allowed to go unchecked.
Treasuries looted
gold absconded
look the other way
loaded in plain sight
drones watching
dead eyed televisions
reporting
another loss
another shortage
the world is lost.
Rally the circus
clown load of car
watch
self-appointed king 
rise.
Folly
just a joke
history has been forgotten
thus
bound to be repeated
fires roaring
flames screaming
new world order
the time has come.

Tales Untold

News
gritty grey
dust covered
death
war
hatred
every channel.
Children stolen
death toll paid
heaps of heads
rolling
fall between the cracks
wails of pain
no answers given
they were not important enough.
Lives
bartered
traded
bound in acrimony
a new regime of slaves
a new phantom to chase.
Roiling
pain
reaching far
wide
spanning crevices
un-sighted hands
plunge in
rip heart free
crushed……
Empathy
the ability to…..
clear see everything…..
brought to our knees
head clutched
no more 
no more
screams of torture
learned dread.
Ghosts
weaving
history
hands
grasping
begging for chance
to have their stories told.
