The Power Of The Throne

While the crowd of politicians haggled
Over who voted for what and when
The rest stood back and wondered
At the falsehoods without end

Cause the truth was never hidden
The reasons not unknown
To those who still were willing
To defy the power of the throne

While the pundits sat and gaggled
Over whom knew what and when
The rest sat back and wondered
At the lying that would not end

Cause the truth was right before them
But the reasons were overblown
For those who were unwilling
To defy the power of the throne

While formations of soldiers rallied
And did what they were told
Many knelt down and wept
At the betrayal of ones so bold

Cause the truth was in their history
The reasons already known
To those who still remembered
Defying the power of the throne

While the mass of people gossiped
Over what they had been told
The rest leaned back In awe
At the madness that had took hold

Cause past lessons had been forgotten
And reasons from memory had flown
Why the people should never hesitate
To defy the power of the Throne
