Fear corrupts the heart,
And then the lies sprout.
The door opens for the devil,
Manipulation becomes the norm.
Truth becomes the victim
While the newly converted
Telling all the world how
Everything said and done is just,
And the congregation just need
To change their shades,
While the perchers bury
their heads in sand.

Wake me up from this bad dream when
All is over and once again civility reigns
Kinder, gentle spirits abound
Everybody gets along together and celebrates
Wake of this great wave of revulsion has propelled
Angry outbursts, spewing venoms of hatred
Kaleidoscope of vibrant colors shattered
Engulfing anxiety weakening inner spirit
Wake for the funeral of decency hope it is not
Anger will subside and sanity prevail
Keeping people united is the order of the day
Enemies of democracy must be kept at bay
