SHILLS*

Balancing deceit
unfeeling to give
bringing to defeat
those wanting to live.

Freedom a pigeon
the world full of shills
taking religion
destroying all wills.

Graft and corruption
evils used path
a world’s destruction
oft everyone’s wrath.

(*Addendum:

We read of allies
China, Russia, France
telling worldly UN lies
with terrorists to dance.

Filling pockets fine
lusting within self
their truths to define
taking Saddam’s pelf.

The US is the pigeon
destroying all freedom
thus their religion
of the shills’ fiefdom.)
