Authority

 

 

“You can’t keep any terror agents out–
of your own states,” states fatherly Barack
in a stern tone that disregards all doubt.
You lack authority at last to block
anything I decide to do. Take stock–
and recognize authority is mine
alone! I hold the key. I lock the lock.
I lock the terror in — and that’s just fine.
Your only option is to fall in line,
submitting to the slaughter yet to come.
Pray that I shield you with my strength divine!
If you dare pray to other gods, be dumb!
Setbacks impend, but don’t you dare complain:
mine is the vastest heart, the greatest brain!”
