A false profit surrounded by a court of pathetic.

who turn their eyes away,

 

as he staggers blind and

power-mad from day to idiotic day

 

Put staying in control ahead of our welfare,

What good are they? WE

 

THE PEOPLE rings hollow in their ears,

tone-deaf and consumed by greed, they hold the key

 

to our kingdom, they're sad enablers, complicit in his crimes

They're the true guilty ones, giving power to his throne

 

By staying silent, and by wielding a rubber stamp,

Guilt by inaction, insanity they condone
