Buying Time by Raymond A. Foss
The chill of their lies
buying time to regroup
to fend off the people
to abduct them in the night
to crush the rebellion

The lies of the rulers
corrupt in their power
bombing their people
crying out for freedom
for fundamental rights

The world silent
complicit in their deception
giving a stage for their madness
to speak without consequence
spewing lies in the air
