FOWC with Fandango — Kowtow


To kowtow or not to kowtow

That is the question,

When surrounded by outrageous lies

Deceit and innuendo.

When truth becomes a marginal commodity

And twisting reality suits

Financial and political gain

One must question the veracity

Of those purporting to be our leaders.

To kowtow is easy, say yes and leave it to them

Only to discover you have been conned

Led astray and ripped off

Your rights diminished

Your right to your say taken from you.

You discover you kowtowed

When at your most vulnerable

Trust eroded, hope gone

The rich getting richer

The poorer sinking further into poverty

All the while being told things have never been better.
