End Times

This must be the end times,
When a nation manages to
Give bodily form to
Its grossest expression
Of political and financial
Manipulation and suppression;
And then to release it
On the very stage of the nation’s
Decision making forums
And world stage.
People turn their face away,
They are so shocked
To see revealed the years of
Previously hidden
Corruption in high places.
This Golem,
This George Bush,
Stands before us
As the very incarnation
Of what a nation
Failed to root out.
