“ 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!

“ The Dark Side ” ~ of man ~

Of man we hoped
While we ignored,
The dark side
Of this being,
Thus would suffer
His betrayal,
Whilst he misused
Our naïve trust,
Hence so bestowed
He’d fail be worthy,
Held higher mortal…

Granitic he levels neath
The surface of intent,
An immoral creature
Of life form pitiable,
That but abuses
The innocent beguiled,
Fellow mortals
Who for the while
Find this being,
A peerless creature
Chosen to elect as leader,
To blindly go on trusting!

“ The Libertine ” ~ moot of noble mind ~

 

‘Tis said of man

The libertine,

Be morally moot

Of noble mind,

And wily so to boot

Will disabuse,

With wanton use

Maids who trust,

Would so dare

Gratify his lust,

Whilst he believes

His actions prove,

He idolized

Those he misused,

In varied guise…

 

Hence naïve women

Unmindful thus,

Will soon fall prey

To his devise,

If chance they must

Dare be in reach,

When he’ll enchant

To mesmerize,

For decadence

He’ll exercise,

On gentle mind

Or femme fatale,

Who be so careless

They be lured,

By the disguise

Of libertine,            

The morally moot

Of noble mind!

 

“ The Pollutician ” ~ known as politician ~

 

There be a time

Man believed,

The Machiavellian

Twisted mind,

Tho by and by

He edified,

His naïve belief

In guileful beings,

Waged employees

Of the electorate,

Known as politicians

Who would so dupe,

A trusting populace…

 

Thus dictionary tells

Politician be defined,

With a flattering say

Is that of schemer,

Who tries to gain

A sly advantage,

In underhanded way…

 

Hence fit homology

For false egalitarian,

We credulous spirits

Naïvely trust as true,

Offers that of polluter

As reference relevant,

To expose immorality

Of these odious beings,

I coin a name for thee

Pollutician, ye now be!
