Demagoguery

It's democracy's reluctant leaders  
Who give liberty its fighting edge  
As well as the contemplative readers  
Sifting the rhetorical sortilege  
The too proud fascist thinks will make us great  
When the wisest among us know full well  
That vainglory is the number one trait
Which sends humanity strait into hell.  

But we don't see despots leading the charge  
Into Armageddon's smoldering pits †
Since conservatives may remain at large  
If they can just send in the untaught twits,  

Leaving the instigators off the hook  
When sado-populism bans a book!
