The Rally

They make believe chaos,
Side with the shouters
And plot all discordant,

They scream for unity
And then build walls,

They scattergun soundbites,
Slideshow confusion
And warm up their armies.

They’re strangers playing risk
And they shuffle us for fun,

They’ve stitched us up
And left us spent,

Now it’s time to come undone.

Corpuscles shiver
Shimmering fields of fresh dew
Happily shell shocked
