puppets and clowns

if you look real close
at the show
you will, in a certain light
see the strings

of course if you believe
the spin
you wil imagine
the puppets and clowns
are free
but anyone
who has tasted
will tell you
it’s just a show
and these are
the characters
who hold you spellbound
the puppet masters
make their secret deals.

believe nothing
and look within
the veil is thin now
and they lay their tawdry goods
out for us to buy

keep your money in your pocket
and dance your freedom
slowly while the puppets and clowns
contort themselves for power.
