The Gathering Storm

The sage disguised 
As fool 
Warned against 
The gathering storm

The stage improvised 
Mimicking tool 
Ignored the 
Gathering Storm

The wage idealized 
Imitation jewel 
Danced in the 
Gathering storm

Are we all hypocrites 
Hoping for something more 
We’ve all been blamed 
By someone certain they were sure 
No one is guiltless 
From shore to shining shore 
The words do not condemn 
But plea for empathy now 
And forevermore
