Two crowns of shame
in the official portraits,
self-declared official.

Blood diamonds.

Self-awarded honours
always reek of
something invented
not real,

The blood is real.
It drips down their
cheeks. Look
carefully at history,
as it is.

Tyranny has never
faded, has always been
centre stage, ignored
at everyone’s peril.

Here are the unjust desserts.

There are many things in my head, but now’s not the time.
