Silence


Nothing’s more peaceful than silence
Unleashing the mindless
With correctional violence
Dictated by blindness
There’s a wall but behind this is silence
Befuddled by mind tricks
Movie flicks move more than politics
View judged by model chicks
They took the truth and bottled it
Politics are filled with blasphemous heretics
Flatulent confederates
Claiming our betterment
Freedom they buried it
From the start of our settlement
Exchanged relevant for intelligent
We vote for president
Then claim that he’s heaven sent
Malcontent with this negligence
History embellishment
Nonexistent fellowship
With countries irrelevant
For every question there’s medicine

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
