Hope Springs

my friend
look no further
for with bludgeons they have bludgeoned you
with bloodbaths that reek of evil

they cudgel you
sandcastles that hang in mid air they have built for you
the flair of pestilence now mocks you hard

they have beaten you down
in Emperor’s new clothes they have dressed you down
robed you into nothing
but look no further

for victory sings closer now
the tolling bell rings louder
a smile now refutes the mundane of cry

do not refuse the crown
look no further down
you have not been run aground
for the sky has heard your plea
