He fooled all the people

Some of the time

Some of the people

All the time

Those adrift, were asinine

Some compared notes

Others took votes

Their hearts in their throats

Soon to discover they

Were all in the same boat

They found his three faces:

The Dark one:

The Face of Un-ending Harm

The Proud One:

The Face of Abject Hubris

But more than this

That caused much alarm


The Deceptive One:

The Face

Of Unbelievable Charm
