Dreaming about the letter D

The devolution of democracy

Duplicity of democrats and Democrats

Darkness descending on D.C.


The danger of the dollar

Backing up the dagger

Pointed at our diaphragm

The dirge of our death song


The dark cloud of ignorance

Drops down on the dominate

Deity of the duped ignorant

Ignoring the divine duality


The drumbeat of dark death

Falls from descending drones

Dropping danger and destruction

On the doomed and defenseless


The danger of despair

Smothers the daylight

Rich despots dupe

The dumb and dammed.
