The Hypocrites Have Come To Power

Peer into the red,
white and blue,
the forsaken rag on a lue,
whose bruises black and blue;
existentially ban the truth.

Hear the speech and it's waves,
defending freedoms none may claim
in a hypocritical world;
where we all shed our tears in plural.

The sons and daughters in their graves,
with their accolades, courage lapels
honor medals lay;
screaming betrayal at the ploy,
sacrifices null and void.

Dragging out the freedom.
Dragging out the freedom.
Dragging out our freedoms and our rights.

Dragging out the freedom.
Dragging out the freedom.
The hypocrites have come to power;
tonight.

    Awesome...and I know exactly what you mean, Michael.. Sometimes I watch what's going on as I have to smile and or laugh ...because as I've said before I would go insane...as man in his foolery believes his delusions. The truth can't be buried forever.. like light, even in the deepest depth of darkness, it shows... Always, Annalise
