The Inaugural Ball of America's Fall

On the infamous, tragic date of January twenty first, two thousand thirteen,
surreptitious, long orchestrated events gave way to an ambiguous elation.
Such an ironic, accepting, joyous treason has never been seen,
The culmination of the Trojan horse take over of a once great nation.

On freedom and hope, “winners” closed their own iron gated curtain,
Their votes for “change” and “choice” had sealed their own negative fate,
Definitions of good and evil exchanged, that much is certain.            
Lies flew like flies from an angel of light in a fiery lake.

The majority voted for a self proclaimed Godless administration,
Again, they knew much better than God and deemed themselves higher,
And conformed His laws to the usual “ I’m worth it” reconfiguration.
Happily roasting themselves on their own funeral pyre.

On the date of this  “ominous party”  take over.
The Constitution was happily thrown to Rover.

    Ah Robert, the tragedy in your words is so true, the events shaping the great America point her in a different direction. How many see it and how many will shore up their affairs before it all happens? One of my infrequent vists makes it a prime reason to be here with you. Love, Lizzie

    I've been working hard to get here and the trip was really worth it. You have to be one of the great political writers out there as you have the ability to spot corruption and lay it out for all to see. Well done my friend. Love, Elizabeth

    Brilliant revealing piece. This stands as a testament to truth. I'm sure Mr. King is rolling in his grave as Obama continues to tarnish his dream.

    Well done. I couldn't watch a single moment of that event. But no doubt, the swarm of lies have infested the far corners of our country.
