Weeping Willow

I cannot
strength is gone
laughter is done
spotlight is out
fading to darkness
life
liberty
justice
it has all been stolen.
Watching
weeping
denial no more
for seeing atrocities
committed
own back yard
it is time
blinders must be peeled.
Heartbreak
children wail
fires roar
anger
reaches over
boiling
reeling
no longer can be contained.
Voices raised
united
roaring displeasure
those few who try to rip asunder.
Black days are coming
no way to stop the horde
oppression
foot on the neck
thy time…..
is done.

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.
