Sad Reality

The sunset
Bid candor adieu
As night crept
Over
The landscape
The crowds cheered
As their leaders
Led them astray
Another dime
For another fray
Allowing lies
To masquerade
In silks & aid
As the truth
Is barred away
As lies dance
Circles around
Their cages

A poem I wrote a few weeks ago for PBF(Poetry Battle Friday) on Twitter.
