HARD FALLS THE RAIN

This dog in a manger “free world” leader,
Deranged as he orchestrates true chaos
Whilst he persistantly tells the same lies.
He cares not about how many will die,
Such collateral damage is to him
A price worth paying to avoid justice.
Misled people believe propaganda,
Attend organised rallies and demos
As if invited to Sunday picnics,
Like Eisenstein’s sheep they devour fake manna
By the shovelful, minds totally blown.
What they fail to realise is how
Completely they have been rooked and gulled,
Stitched up to provide artificial fronts
For the death of their democracy.
They send millions of campaign dollars,
To keep the demagoguery afloat,
Soon will be a time no-one has a vote,
The confidence trickery still will shine,
They’ll believe the dictatorship benign.
Amerika televised great again,
I cry as I watch, and hard falls the rain.

Harry Rogers, in the Yellow Room, 13th January 2021.
