24 Dec 2016 – Great

So who ya gonna push beneath the bus today?
Whose life is inconvenient, gotten in your way?
The blood’s already dried from last week’s sacrifice.
The High Priest tweets for more – it’s even televised –
and every sewer answers to his call. Men’s shame
has now become their glory, hatred’s growing flame
contorts these faces, ruining once human shapes –
the vilest oaths are uttered – now we’re once more “Great!”
