These times we live in would
Set a man to rave
In a spring downpour of bad news
Like Lear in the storm
While Reagan decries courtly rights
As Fake News
And Cordelia dies with her discovery
That the Truth cannot stave off tragedy
It only deepens the pools of reflection
In the aftermath for the Losing Side.
History is written and repeated by The Winners.
These times we live in
Would set a man to rave
But in a world where all are raving
Clear-skied clarity is the Fool’s Domain.
