Garrulous Regent

Sitting
head in hands
watching headlines scroll passed
one t.v.
two t.v.’s
three…….
so many
with so many different stories
all saying
pointing to the same thing
proving to nations falling
warnings not heeded
ominous omens
lead to dissolution
lead to war
lead to nothing.
Saviour of the Century
cried upon the corner
magic to flow from fingertips
greatness shall reign
greatest sovereign in recent history.
Platitudes roll
spinning through air
translucent in truth
dust motes upon sunbeam.
Tears
mouth in melted moue
wailed anguish
whimpers
baby like tantrums….
People just don’t like him.
Everyone is out to get him.
He was great why could they not see?
Never to acknowledge
fault for disrepair
living in fantasy world
where all love and adore.
When faced with reality
with those not respectful
terrible twos in an elderly man
ugly sight
his vanity panned.

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.
