the clown who would be king

there have been so many things
that really should have
rung the bell
made it clear that it was done
no more cruelty
no more lashing out
lies that roll out like thunder
indifference
living off the faint praise
of posturing clowns
and yet, there he is
glowing in the light
of the uninlightened
