Orwellian Rise

We live in a world where world leaders do what they want Shoving nationalism down our throats here there and everywhere From Putin the Dog’s Neo Soviet adventures in Ukraine and Syria To President Trumpton’s use of American weapons like toys Via England and Wales kissing goodbye to Europe in Brexit There is misplaced national pride everywhere Including Turkey’s Erdogan the Goat’s goal of being dictator Iran style Backed up by France’s National Front racist anti-immigration female Le Pen These bumholes work together to take the world back a century Stomping upon their populations’ wishes and liberties In the name of misguided pride and national advantages Where only the leaders benefit with even more power and control Red China has Xi the Turtle who steals an entire ocean and builds new land Closely followed by North Korea’s dear plump pudding leader who’s a pure psychopath There will be fifty others not mentioned who are all the same Pedaling their selfish ideals and beliefs in the name of national development Catching every person in a vice like grip and stealing their freedom All to make an Orwellian Twenty First century world where people are pawns With every thought and each action monitored in minutest detail The only escape is death and a one way trip to the next world Away from this inherently unstable place with its mad leaders
