Watching the Ripples Radiate.
Author: marshalg

Chapter 54
Demagogues

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Popular passions and prejudice

Allow leaders to be made

In relinquishing restraint

The personal liberties are paid

As a deposit on a future

Broadcast across the sky

With adroit manipulation

Committing conscience to a lie.

 

Throughout the ages men have played

This game upon the herd

They have gathered up authority

And decreed your law absurd.

By imposing new direction

And recruiting angry might

They have altered world perception

And changed global day to night.

 

From Genghis Kahn to Hitler

Mussolini to Pol Pot

The Russian tyrant Stalin

And add Mao to this lot.

Napoleon upon his steed

Milosevich was bad

And I see old Georgie Bush

Has got McCain into his bag.

 

They insist on domination,

They insist on being King,

They demolish opposition

And abhor relinquishing

The smallest item of authority,

The slightest nuance of esteem

And their plunder of society

Is discerned as unobscene.

 

World domination is the target

White supremacy today.

Why allow a rising talent

The potential to display

Their claim to superpower status?

When the real acid test

Is not in the long term interests

Of the pirates in the West.

 

Be aware it's all beginning

The demagogues are back,

There are moves afoot to reassert

Old Hitler's bloody track.

They want the power in their hands

They don't care how it's won

And they will sacrifice a million lives

With their self righteous, God blessed gun.
