The Demagog

Passions ignited and burst into flame;
As the man spoke,
The crowd became
Wilder, more frenzied;
Joining in the game
With fervor for him and his cause.

 

Mindless insanity grew in the heat;
As the man spoke,
They would repeat
Parts of his phrases,
Chanted to a beat
With fervor for him and his cause.

 

“How is it that so many lose their heads?”
People would ask,
As the man said
Things so clearly wrong;
They swallowed instead
With fervor for him and his cause.

 

It isn’t our heads we lose, but our heart;
Passion is stirred;
Then people start
To join and react
To deception’s spark
With fervor for him and his cause.

 

Oh, guard your heart and mind to keep your soul
From ruthless ones
Whom you don’t know;
Preying on people
So that they will go
With fervor for them and their cause.

 

The promise of greatness stokes hope and fear,
As the man speaks,
The crowd will cheer,
But let your own heart
Be perfectly clear:
No fervor for him and his cause.

 

A powerful person, you have a voice
Let no one seek
To steal your choice;
But confidently
Acknowledge the joys
Of fervor for life and its cause.
