to our new democratic overlord
majesty, where is your kingdom now?
having brought us to this ruin, are you proud
to rule so thoroughly a land so benighted,
so exquisitely ruined through your lust for power,
your unrestrained ego, your inhuman desires?
majesty, behold the expedient beauty you have brought us:
disaster, tragedy, and calamity are but for you opportunity
and every word you speak designed to project
your crafted, chameleon image to maximum effect;
idylls of profanity–pretence and vanity all now hold sway
majesty: behold your empty empire of ruin and decay.
