An opinion of how it worked :]

This Propaganda

\"\"

 

The silence passes by

 A slow train of golden peace

An era of suspense

The break waiting to be broken

 

The wave of his words

Smooth, calming, and smart

Forming around the empty air

Lines of poetry, pure charisma

 

The lullabies of supposedly clean words

Imagery and irony in one

The contradiction in each little statement

All ignored by the people

 

These promises, these lies

When the silence is broken by missiles

And world has taken sides

It was all propaganda

This poem is weak in imagery and weak in execution. Almost all the words are abstract and are not supported by anything sensual.

I recommend putting more imagery in the poem. I really enjoyed, "When the silence is broken by missiles". This is a captivating image. put more of those in here.
