The Town Crier weeps


 

Screaming from the mountaintop to the valley below,

but my warnings of displeasure echoes back off barren cliff walls

 

An enraged, helpless, sickened, saddened town crier,

foaming at the mouth in a soundproof rubber room,

 

Dancing to silence, because the guy lives in delusion's bubble,

ears closed to the truth, or any complaints

 

Supposed to represent everybody, not just the true believers,

but he's so much worse than I ever thought possible

 

Government by Kool-Aid, government by chaos, government by Hannity

an isolated birther at the helm, steering the ship of state

 

towards Niagara Falls, Viagra Falls,

If a warning falls in the forest, does anyone hear?

Melancholic Wisdom

This is a great way of expressing anger and frustration. The whole thing is incredible, the last 4 lines are really something special. To me, at least, this is a good commentary on the current government in America. I love it, great work.
