Hollow Man

All you who in your freedom chose to follow,
In hate and ignorance of what would come,
Him whose wizened heart and head are hollow,
Come embrace your consequence and doom.
Chameleon, snake or call him what you will,
He’s pushed you to accept by small degrees
All postures, lies, deceptions vile, and still
You hang on to your hateful fantasies.
Did you really think his shouted hate
Would turn on others only and leave you
Alone to boast of your superior fate?
Did you believe you were the chosen few?
Can you still think that this most hollow man
Will not take from you everything he can?
