Black rain slithers from bloated clouds
as the politician’s speech ends
down millions of ears
promises drip and echo
igniting emotions, and cheers

Eyes held hostage
words morph into
tight ropes
silver-tongue bondage

Worldwide adulation

“They fell for it again.”
I observe their world from above
beside my laughing Master

“What a disaster,” she says.
“Ah, it’s fun to twist
this design.”

She forces her claw further
down their sky

“Let’s see what happens this time.”
