They planned carefully, but had to wait,
their ideas too radical, they’d lose the debate.
The old man was weak, glory days in the past,
his energy dwindled, health wouldn’t last.
The younger upstart, stood in the wings,
followers were doing the strangest things.
Others were blamed, for troubled caused,
they stepped it up, without much pause.
Business’s targeted, chaos in the streets,
many followed along, admiring their feats.
Hate spread like a virus, throughout the land,
those who opposed, afraid to take a stand.
Media spread the news, with bias light,
line faded, between wrong and right.
few suspected, a coverup was in place,
everything appeared fine, face-to-face.
The old President grew ill, soon died,
his heir apparent sad, I think they lied.
Soon the new leader, changed history,
with secret plan, no longer a mystery.
Be wary of the media, looks may deceive,
great speeches of unity, too good to believe.
Behind smoked mirrors, lies the reason,
for Satan waits, for the perfect season.
