Each shoe,
a life He knew,

The Politician

Puppet

Figure on strings

Moved by a wealthy hand 

Willingly manipulated
                         
Dummy

A Fugitive

                                          A Fugitive

                                          Fugitive
                                  wandering, nomadic
                          escaping, eluding, absconding
                       frightened alone seeking sanctuary
                                          Refugee

Seize The Reins

Just seize the reins,
Impose your agenda,
Tighten your grip on the masses,
Control.

Recall

In early August the order was placed
He was inserted inside his crate
With designs in hand the builders raced
Inside my brother was to wait
Safe inside from harm

Awaiting his debut
On his head they covered with just a hint of hair
They painted his eyes blue
A likeness to his designer he did share
He could suck a thumb at the end of his arm

Misfortune befell him today 
This days not one of joy
All his dreams have been torn away
All the dreams of this little boy
January 15, his order was aborted

Sore Losers

You sowed chaos and instability in the Middle East
through the violent revolutions of the Arab Spring.
Now you want to bring home the same vile beast
of anarchy, chaos and upheaval so that you can
keep your power and nobody can change a thing.

Fake Reality

Don't believe anything you read!

Fake World

Don’t believe anything you hear!
Don’t believe anything you read!
Don’t believe much of what you see!
Because every day we’re all lied to
by the REAL purveyors of “fake news”!

The Green Party's Jill Stein

You raised only $3.5 million for your election run,
where did you find now $7 million for a recount?!
You claim that you hate moneyed interests badly,
yet you seem to love Hillary's deep pockets madly.
I hope the recount makes you our next President!

bruises her breasts
with broken teeth she goes back
