Crown the Fool

charleskean

Enter the Carnival

A fool is crowned

Our kingdom now cruel

From princes no sound

 

From grace we stray

Follow a wolf as sheep

Our colors turned gray

A decline so steep

 

Of indifference the cost

Awake reverse the trend

Ourselves cannot be lost

Patriotism must not pretend

 

Greatness vainly sought

Ethos and pathos to wedge

Exposing the stinking rot

A society on the edge

 

To rule by the mob

The fool’s errand

By grace of God

Will fascism end

 

Give rise to saviors

Good citizens fight back

Stem the tidal waves

The glass house will crack

 

Stand atop your stumps

Raised voices be heard

Our love hate trumps

Democracy a hallowed word

 

Power needs silence

Words poison’s antidote

Fools fear dissent

Scared of the vote

 

Keep your mind free

Avoid their cynical trap

Question and see

With thoughts attack

 

A short cycle I pray

Foolish reign soon over

Come now election day

Our nation will recover
