The General Deception, part 2 [sonnet]

Posted on Updated on


This world has been designed to house the Lie.
At no time is that lie more clear than when
the salesmen we call politicians vie
to take us for a ride and vote… again.

Why do we fall into this trap like sheep,
imagining they’ll bring us good and wealth;
allowing them to put us all to sleep
with falsehood. They seduce our minds by stealth.

(But yet I have this vision in my soul
when all is one and only goodness reigns;
where rulers are defunct and have no role;
where red and blue are flowers and love pertains).

I cringe at what these middlemen avow.
Why can’t it just be like that vision… now?
