Losing our Heads
Too many place their trust in queens and kings
Or posturing, self-promoting presidents.
But where’s the difference? When to all intents
And purposes, whether birth or ballot brings
Them to throne or office, each for all the pomp
With or without benefit of election
Become the focus for misdirection,
Hoping none see the trick by those who romp
Away with the profits and disappear,
While the esteemed leader of the nation
Receives the expected adulation
From all whose vision’s presently unclear.
But what meaning for any head of state,
When the spectacle fails to fascinate?
