Dark Ages

Justify
lies
tales
wrung so far from truth
head cocked
watching sweat drip
makeup bleed
all over collared shirt
slowly
world begins collapsing
look around
falling fast
minions with blind trust
lack of morals
found in the bedroom
of rich men
promising
reassurance
everyone still loves
greed is everything
stupidity the new law
get in line
he will let you lick his toe
to keep you complacent
keep you addicted
deadly accident
cannot look away
stunned
behaviour such as this
arrogant ignorance
baby bully
bruising basher
myopic minstrations
fitting for Middle Age despot
not 21st century politics.

Abide

Tip toe through the tulips
gripping your crown
see the clown dancing
swaggering
strutting
prancing
along the avenue
trickling bones
from his finger tips.
Furtive glances
side long smiles
see how they grin
believing
understanding
(or so they thought)
no one would see passed…..
Can can dancers
slight of hand
magic sparkles
thrown in the air
drowning
hiding
cloaking
dastardly deeds played out.
Wide mouthed smiles
banalities uttered
false truths waved around.
White flags
give unto the enemy
hand it over
freedom
currency spent
deposited into the coffers of aliens…..
whilst brave men
audacious men
fight for reality
fight for equality
fight for authenticity
fight to live life
fight to right the wrongs.
Wishes become horses
beggers do ride
time has come…..
Finally
all shall abide…..
