Artifice

Ferociously
we strive
to outvie

all Others,
in a dashing 
display

to be counted
as the champions;
The Ally.

Spruced up
messages
of solidarity,

Standing tall
with the Cause 
of the Times

We beam,
all teeth
and jingles, 

on screens
words writ louder
than loudest of outcries

slowly reduced
in gravy of sapid
self-righteous pride

Our constitution
starved,
Unnoticed it died

Indicted long ago
for being too laborious;
a pointless point.
