In between the digit of his penning
He weaves the will of his minions to his desired design

Within the circle of his desperation
lurking to cap the sign of an uprising.
Holding on to a future that is not,
With a fragile grasp that is short
And the grip of his cronies.

Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
