Sand Castles

The peeling paper thin veneerfacemask

as muted colors coming clear

bridges burn and scorched villagers

banter now of similar pillages.


Somewhere deep within the mumbles

a reputation slowly crumbles

while the self proclaimed pillar sways

and drifts to dark for fear of day.


Twisted truths soon come to light

as demons linger long past night

one by one masks leave his face

and so begins the fall from grace.


Courage stripped to cowering fear

while songs of praise replaced by sneers

with sour notes sung way off key

foretell how things to come will be.


And so now ends the tyrants rule

the king becomes his kingdom’s fool.
