BROKEN BOW...
(Political Satire)

 

holding jaw high, proud

as animated, raw crowd

awards unmerited noises loud

 

seen as "miracle worker"

yet, if truly knowing self

would elate at being despised

grasping that his faith

shamelessly he compromised

walking in unfitting shoes

formidably disguised

 

raising face high, proud

as enthusiastic, thick crowd

rewards with unearned sounds loud

 

looked upon as "miracle worker"

still, if truly knowing self

would grieve facing undue praise

grasping he failed to show a face

conceding faith in all-round ways

 

striding in garment disguised

subteen... sterile... sterilized...

choices beefed up with satanic ties

if knowing self

would exult at being despised

inflated buffoon with caustic lies

 

set down as "miracle worker"

instead as a lost fellow

needing heart rich and mellow

dressing in suit on credit

with no liable human merit

 

just a broken violin bow...

in the Hand of Divine Artist...

is he eager to conform?

willing to sow... to grow?

battle ever persistent foe?

seek for true cause to glow?

 

executive mansion

puppet master...

hubristic, horripilant,

cunning noggin,

leader of arrant disaster...

The tragedy of the spiritually unreformed and uninstructed politician - the hovering moral and political dangerous predicament that his high position creates for society is so artfully expressed this serious yet satirical verse!

Another great poem! I know whom you had in mind when you crafted this one. I agree completely with you! Again, this work reveals wise, vigilant, and farsighted spiritual understanding. Beware of corrupt politicians!
