12 Dec 2015 – Dragon Rising

Lied to once too many times,
now the angry classes rise,
led by one who fans the fringe,
saying “We’ll be great again!”

Pundits sneer and tell us, quote,
“soon they’ll disappear like smoke?”
Weimar clung to such a lie,
cast its vote and millions died.

Violence now forshadows votes,
clutching at each others throats.
Rage is but another tool
rich men use to sway we fools.

Listen now, with all your might!
We may yet avert a fight,
wakening to ancient drums,
once more fighting wars once won.
