Despicable Acts Of Treason



Where does one go to try and hide,
There despicable acts of treason.
After a tearful performance,
Of Earth shattering innocence.

To who and where does one go,
With convincing attempts...
They meant no harm to anyone left,
Accused of being an unpatriotic culprit.
Picked to victimized.
By one who displays charm and sincerity.
As if born adorned with a halo.
And prepared to walk on water if asked.

Skillful these days are demons displaying,
Self righteousness and biblical quotes.
Spoken to invoke those listening,
To remove their clothes.
Undressed and exposing,
Every flaw and blemish to confess sins...
Not yet to have made.

But day after day and those days not to come,
Dispicable acts of treason to witness done...
Seem to be quickly forgotten to forgive.
If the performers are known,
To have status and wealth.
And capable to pay anyone to look away.
With this to do to continue to deceive,
Themselves to be the 'Chosen.
Leaving no one to question,
From which side of 'Hell' they represent.
And who,
Supported and endorsed...
Their rise to heights of devilment.
Done with a giving approval and consent!
