Directive - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A directive has been taken,
To usurp all power and rule!
Secretly this has been done to us...
By one who bypasses the fools.
Dictatorship implemented,
Is certainly due to come.
Quietly creeps
The one in this power seat.
To unravel lifestyles and the laws
Of everyone.
In the days of May...
What's been said has been done!

'National emergency! '
Effective and declared by one!
