Sycophant King

Sycophant King

He favors tailored navy blue suits that look exactly the same

And white shirts decorated with solid silk ties

Perfectly pinched below the Gordian knot

That binds him to the land of Mordor where the shadows lie.

He majored in deception and has picked many a pocket clean

Wearing his practiced smile of starched white teeth

Flashing like a strobe in an after hours club.

He reached the top the old fashioned way —

Kissing ass

Taking credit for other people’s ideas

Daggering them in the back with whispers made of lies.

No one knows what he really thinks and neither does he

Because he thinks like the people he seeks to please.

Now that he’s reached the top there is nothing left to steal

No one with whom to share a thought

Only angry ghosts seeking revenge.

Who shall shed a tear

For the sycophant king?

    Probably the poor damned fool… (And just let’s say, that he might plausibly be in a down draft, or better, a “bubble”, )

    THis godamned guy is not performing for the Democratic base folkes, that he made a contract with, but of course it was a “verbal” contract, and is not too sturdy maybe…/

    You see your country being destroyed, with the best of intentions, so that is… ” NOT COOL!!”

    Well like I say… not cool, and we may be in for a time… I told you all about what I sawr, I saw the future. I saw we would be ground up with beautiful cutting machines. The beauty of the cutters was what made me remember…. Probably titanium.
    Recently I sawr a motor cycle wheel that looked a lot like one of these monster human cutting machines lately, These devils. Hells devils if you want… The thing is: we, humans, were conveyed down by some conveyor belt type of a deal, to these horrendous beautiful titanium… ( shining bright artfull wheels) that grind us into hamburger.
