Recompense

Prancing.
Dancing.
Tumble out of the way
here comes the court clown
dressed in a gown
ready to play.
Fat.
Rich.
Bloated they sit
staring
wondering
puzzled
at what he may say.
‘Hear ye
hear ye
Gentleman
Lads
Ladies
all shall we include
I have an announcement to make.’
Heads begin to turn
eyes narrowed in fear
his whiplash tongue
had been known to
destroy
raze
devastate
men stronger in power
men stronger in riches
men stronger in their supreme courts
than he will ever be.
‘Time has come to make recompense
for all the evil you have done.
Eradicating
denying
eliminating
laws that discredit you
ideas you do not like
whole groups of people
censored
when they speak the truth.’
With all eyes upon
he turned
walking away
leaving mouths agape
hearts racing
brains churning
at what he meant.
What he left them with
was a fear so great
nothing more needed to be done.
What scenarios they imagined
would be far worse than he could do.

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.
