“ Followed Heroes ” ~ that weren’t ~

We followed heroes

That weren’t,

They who sent boys

In their stead

To get burnt,

Maimed, lamed

Or wretchedly dead…

 

We follow cowards,

Who professed

To undo the mess,

Of affluent power

Held un-confessed,

Orchestrators

Of partisan-fests,

Only to find

They heroed us blind,

To pocket what’s yours

And what’s mine…

 

Yet we the naive

Follow heroes that aren’t,

Who cause us grieve,

The while charade

Fixing the morrows,

To incarnate their masquerade!
