wrack (2016) by Rich Follett

 

behold
truth is fluid
reason goes begging
hope is poverty and
fortune follows the imbecile

forsooth
pundits are lepers
enmity blooms
ignorance is airborne and
opportunity courts privilege

beware
when fear drives decisions
democracy dies
dreams are defiled and
bedlam ensues
