Quicksand Of Indecency

He hypnotizes the masses
It gets easier as time passes
A few eloquent words
Transform them into gullable asses

Blinded by his megawatt smile
It cloaks an oppressive style
Penetrate beyond the facade
And discover a mind drenched in guile

He promised to be more open and clear
But his actions haven’t improved the atmosphere
His fanciful phrases distract you
From his devotion to spreading the fear

He knew the reality before he ran
Yet he proceeded to push a phony plan
He was never serious about reversing
The decline caused by the previous man

Now he oversees an ongoing wretched mess
And continues to pull fast ones over a lenient press
But do his other supporters doubt much of what he says?
Take a wild, educated guess

Ignore the crumbling, he’s winning rave reviews
For the sudden announcement of his stunning good news
Can’t wait for the pitchforks and flaming torches
That await the unfortunate who offer opposing views

The cheering and the bloodlust has gotten out of hand
All because of a mob hit on an unarmed man
The target was no saint
But he deserved to be prosecuted by the laws of this land

And now the fallout begins
With the proverbial changing winds
We’re drowning in a quicksand of indecency
And no one wins
