The Greatest Showman

The greatest showman takes the stage,
with a perfect performance he's selected,
to captivate the crowd,  
and ensure that he's elected.
 
As he stands behind the podium,
with a charismatic charm, he casts
a spell upon the audience;
Oh, the fans that he's amassed!
 
They stand before him faithfully,
As he drowns them in a sea of lies;
He manipulates them gracefully,
Part of the plan that he's devised.
 
They gnash their teeth in anger,
as their hearts are filled with hate,  
by a man who claims to share their struggle,
but in reality, he can't relate.
 
Raised with a silver spoon in hand,
He never struggled for a meal;
Yet, he acts like he can understand
What the common man can feel.
 
He blames the bloody Democrats
for every problem that we face;
When in reality we're all to blame...
The entire human race.
 
Such a monumental masquerade,
making a mockery of democracy,
As the ass parades his mass charade
Of horrible hypocrisy.
 
He plays upon our primal fear,
a fear of losing what we own,
and watches as we fight it out,
while sitting smugly upon his throne.
 
When the show is finally over,
He stops to bow before the crowd.
A wild applause erupts the room;
He couldn't be more proud.
 
As the curtains close to prying eyes,
He breaks character behind the scenes.
"Such a brilliant script that I've devised,  
to divide them at their the seams."
 
For we are merely pawns to him,
In this game of politics we play,
Where neither side is set to win
if we can't find a better way.

Note: this piece is not specifically an attack on Trump, although I'll admit, I don't like the guy, so I'm sure that comes out in this piece. It's moreso a rant about the corruption of our political establishments and the way in which this has divided our nation. It's not just Trump - this system isn't working.
