Slithering beneath the grass he has grasped the ankles of his followers, sinking his fangs with precision. Poisoning their thoughts, their freedom with hypocrisy, fraud, and the keen ability of a silver tongue.
Upon his pedestal he walks with a darkly sheen, as if something unworldly. As he ensnares the weak with bountiful dishonesty. With deceptive hatred toward his enemy, using the feeble as fodder for his tricks. His inevitable plan to be sly, powerful, and filthy to world, but be lacking in consequence.
Engaging in the atrocious behind closed doors. Generating his wealth through the arms of our enemies and giving no heed to the fallout that shall be. He lives in marriage but has looped his flesh in fruitless desires upon the younger, more naive of women, and speaks of no remorse. Using his position as reason to gain pleasure, even in the chambers of royalty.
But dare we speak poor of him, for such a man is a great curator of justice, not just for man, but women. His mistakes, though still curated upon his sinister foundation, with no true heart of confession or regret. Many still hold his history as if to be bold, an undying legacy of change.
Bringing hope to a generation that now cowers beneath a pitted narrative. But they will stand beside him and he beside them. As if the unholy acts and ravaged consent of others is but a spec of dust upon the shoulder; waiting to be brushed.
He is without out his evil queen, as she too allows him to walk without a bruise. Closing the door as the vile spills from his guts. Paying no mind to his demeanor to be feverish in toward the flesh. Strolling through gardens and picking that which he craves with no worry of confinement.
For a village, no, a city of corruption has he created. Allowing the sewage of lies to be the water of which he drinks. Surfing on the taxes of others and polluting the minds of the young, how foolish must we become, to allow the freedom of such a man?
Even if to cut him from his knees, how does one succumb to justice in a world that praises him in all scenes of the famous?
Thank you for reading, do you think there is corruption in our system, if so why and where?

I have been writting poetry on medium, does anyone still wish me to write short stories on here?
A Summer Bird's Winter Perch I watch this lonely bird chirp upon a slopping branch. Its feet wrapped firmly around the thin finger of bark. As I watch, I commiserate its position. Sitting there, alone, singing with no others to listen. Speaking I assume, to itself. Maybe contemplating its unfortunate circumstance. For the rest had already left for the winter. If I am not mistaken it was only a few days ago that I watched a flurry of birds dart by. Their wings flapping against the brisk wind collectively. Not a single one appeared worried of their journey. Their shadows crawled quickly across the empty streets during a fall evening. I watched them pass by like a feather floating down stream. I couldn't help but wonder, how long must they fly? What winds must they fight, what elements must they battle against? All must be against them as is every moment in time is against us all? Yet they fly forth to the heat of earth. Dependent upon their survival but, what
Step Out! Out, Out from the gloom, The obscure breath of doubt Take stone, break thy yoke, Let trouble fall, let shoulders be lifted, Flow, to the heavens Be but strain no more, Open wide, thy mouth, Let prayer fill thy tongue Be parched no more. Stillness in heart Though seas roar like lions, And beast snarl among mist, Step, Out! To mercy of life, Ease, be reborn. Let no shackle of past Be meaning for tear Take hammer, Fracture the cumbersome Be feet of swift Fill your days with strides, Though dunes widen And heat scorches thy soles. Out, Step out from thy fear, There is another to call To breach, To reach your heart Though thee be of man, Let not thy eyes of flesh Be the dealings of truth, Wander, In aspect to be whole Be not the coward hidden in cave, A creature curled Like frightened doe, For he walks beside thee, Like king among his men, A sword of greatness Sways from his belt, Ready, To swing against thy enemies, A presence more bold Than all the stars of a pitch sky.
