Response is Draconian,
As if Napoleon’s
Back on the emperor’s throne.
Except now with “wanna-bes”
Ruining economies,
Governing states like his clone.

With millions devoid of work,
Thousands who’ve gone berserk,
Rest trying just to survive,
Why do these pretenders
Who chose to surrender
To hype of “Pandemic!” still thrive?

If taking back national
Interests feels rational,
Should not the people react?
Since governing phonies
Have lacked the cojones
To switch from retreat to attack?

    The ultimate fraud,
    For whom not one life matters,
    And leftists applaud.
