The Demigods: Poetry

Emperors that have no clothes:

The Power-Hungry
clinging to notions of Superiority even as
their own are sacrificed for the Cause

Philosophical Monsters
who justify their own immorality
with Logic gone insane

Supporters of Anarchy
telling themselves society "has not caught up"
with their hideous versions of Life

Television Prima donnas
flashing privates in public
and intimacies on film
to garner publicity

Religious Charlatans 
of every stripe
fleecing impoverished flocks

Political Mavericks
one step ahead of their scandals
and two steps behind Effectiveness

And a Bloated Bureaucracy
effectively keeping their jobs in every sector
while failing to actually do them.
