What If..

what if
down the road in time

a look back shows a loss of mind

facts wounded, locked in a bind

rummage through states of mind

shows emperor clinging to his line

time reveals some knew these truths

chose power, stayed tucked in ruse

  1. Well…..this was an interesting post for me because my mind immediately went to our former president Trump and what is called “the big lie” — and people still ascribing to it. Don’t know if you intended to refer to that at all….I guess that just shows how all the news coverage in the past, and sadly now still, embeds in our psyche and memories. So much so, that the knee jerk reaction is to recall it.
    Excellent use of the prompt!
