Every painful breath in must out!
In your realm!
Needing breathlessness, have ceased!
Know this day is real, pinch it!
Accept those times have passed, forget them!
Make merry oh ye Saints with perfect eyes!
All around you
Like survivors of toxic taunts,
All is calm!
Hope now lives among us!
Affability can now walk on kind heels!
Reason now sits on head thrones!
Risky red rose now lies afoot!
Indicating a new dawn
Specially made possible by thumbs of wisdom!
Like dark clouds a demon besieged a bright sky
Tearing apart love and harmony
Destooling peace to enstool chaos
Forcing colours to battles of hatred
With utterances which were bombs
…to destroy all sides
Yet closed minds rallied behind the orange bull dog
…as he tore relations apart!
We thought four years a century
And thought power overbearing!
We thought idiocy a requirement
…of followers oh so flawed!
We thought hatred supreme
And saw guns parading!
We saw protectors turn hunters
…as innocent citizens turned prey!
We saw children in cages
As a queer wall steering wicked thoughts raged!
We saw horror murders used to clean horrible mistakes!
We saw unbelievable negativity
…getting standing ovations on a power stage!
And like sheep led by a wolf in shepherd skin
…the world lived the fear
And now it is all over!
This zooms in the transiency of power!
This stamps boldly the power of thumbs!
This shows the unmerciful steps of the tick tock
And warns beasts to measure their feasts!
For time hops from their tops to their flops
…without as much as a squeak
Pushing them under the carpet of nothingness
…leaving them gullible to insects and dust
