In this age of chaos, troubled tunes do chime; seems elites can't control all the power. Brawn does drag down ruler's clout over time, only ones of merit can clutch the hour. Military might has crushed many a soul no one escapes, though millions are in play. Through turbulent times it's taken its toll; everything said, one must watch what they say. One slip and an entire empire may fall, fear Black Angel rumblings that lead to war. Flicking a sole switch could end it all in fiery overtures which singe the score. Burden often flows from buried regrets battles long fought that memory forgets. Sonnet 14 lines 105 words 1/7/23 Illustration colored pencil by G. Gaul
