Blind Deceit

Where he came from we are not sure

We hung onto his words of hope

And gave him all he wanted

While we slept in triumphant bliss

The ones with their eyes open, warned

We just thought they were idiots and made fun

We were happy that he was here

Trusting on his every word and decision

Little did we know we would one day awaken

To find the devastation that followed his path

He held his head high, smiled and tried to encourage

You deceived us with your false hope

Now that we are awake we know who you are

Be gone from this place, we no longer follow you

We created a you, dictator, by giving you our power

We have so much work to do to repair the damage

No more blame, now we will work together

Because that is who we are deep down inside

One people, under God, with Liberty and Justice for All!

Voted up. Great poetry. Deceit is hard to take from another person and hard to forgive.

ZipperConstantine...Your word ran so true..I know of what you speak..I too heard the words and weighed the options...however..evidently many others did not..and yet as the saying goes.." If it was a Doberman, it would have bitten you "...all you had to do was weigh the pro's and cons..besides didn't anyone see the previous track record ?

Loved your hub..and the hidden message..couldn't agree any suggestions for a solution ? Have a great week-end ..voted up and sharing
