Where are the heroes?
Have they gone out of style?
I fear they’ve all fallen,
Victims to old King Vile
Where are the voices of dissent?
Have they been silenced?
Rebuffed by the bully from his pulpit
Neither fair nor balanced.
Where are the watchdogs?
Have they been blinded?
Given poisoned bits to calm their barks
No longer straining at the leash.
