Trust and Obey?

There’s a new sheriff in town
I’ve heard he speaks loudly,
Carries a teeny tiny schtick
His minions denounce loudly,

Don’t mind his words
Just trust in his heart

But I’ve listened and looked
Can’t tell his intent apart
From the hate and the bile
He spews with such glee
If he expects obeisance
He won’t get it from me.

Trust and obey?
For there’s no other way?
To survive four years
Of a would be tyrant’s sway.
Pardon my dissent,
I’ll use reason and wit
Hide under the hedgerow
And gleefully resist.

      1. Dissident Murmurs is a blog I set up exclusively for the collection of dissident writing. My plan is to contribute original work there occasionally but to primarily use it as a nexus for writing in opposition to the growing climate of fear and hate. Many of the blogs I follow have been producing works in this vein for the last month or so and I wanted to collect them together to share. I think I may open the blog to other authors to directly contribute. I know some people are reluctant to take their personal blogs down the rabbit hole and have been censoring their more critical writing. I hope this can become a place where people feel free to post what they may otherwise feel restrained to share.
