sheep

justice dresses as a clown
and takes a fall or two
it doesn’t really matter
as it’s only judging you
your cardboard cut-out honesty
will buy you nothing here
except a journey to the grave
with a bellyfull of fear
still the damned keep coming back
as near as I can tell
to whisper of the many joys
that can be found in Hell
merely asking questions
may see you on your way
to where your spirit shrivels
in the burning light of day
you made your bed now lie in it
pretend that you can sleep
but I can see right through you
like all the other sheep

    Maybe it’s just on my mind, but this speaks to me of the politcal climate in the US right now. 😦

    • I can’t say that politics was what I was particularly thinking about while writing it, but I can see how it applies to many politicians and their followers, US and otherwise, you have no monopoly on hypocrisy and demagoguery 😈
