the overriding narrative

has always been a cliché
promises built by hedge funders
their miserable small mouths
propagating big lies

the elites speak their hour
and then pickup their check
cloak themselves 
like the genteel of old

if there are commitments
there are also betrayals
only those in the trenches
see the water rising

the best of the offerings
are stale cotton candy
when you melt it down
the colors are indistinguishable

it makes no difference
whether you were a true blue believer
in the charade
or simply a go-along get-along
