My pile is bigger than yours
bigger house, car, bank account
therefore I must be more important.
Kings bow before me
people turn in fear
dogs roll over
children cry

Yet I stand behind a curtain
roaring orders to all
magnified to a booming voice
and lie afraid in the dark
knowing its all a sham
my thumb in my mouth
crying for a mommy that
never comes.

    Ah, I have met one of those hiding behind the curtain tweeting orders… and it’s not a pretty sight!! A sham… but a dangerous one. “I command you,” he tweeted in his dictatorial voice. Really, by whose authority??
