Whispered Rumors

in dark corners.

Revolution.

Air Electric

with hopes of change.

Public in

muted outrage.

Black Marker protests

on 5 o' clock news.

 

Men

in expensive suits.

Sharp wit.

Smooth talkers.

Speak in riddles

through Gluttonous portals

ot tooth

and tongue.

 

empty promise

wearing the disguise

of truth
