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.

Megalomaniac

With flashing red eyes
drool upon his lip
maddened by the frenzied crowd
he stands upon the dias
awaiting his future.
Disregarding fair play rules
he raged
he frothed
he made secret deals
to undermine the truth
which all were to live by.
Enemies were made to disappear
friends were pulled in close
there is no middle ground
only two groups
one had better pray
should they find themselves
on the Enemy of the State list.
he incites riots
rage for those who disregard
his blatent lies
while holding his hands out for more…..
stroke his ego
make him feel like a god
(note the little g)
time will come when he will fall.
