It Is Said In The Land Of The Blind

It is said in the Land of the blind that the one eyed fellow is the king
And as they march for him to war his praises they always do sing
And whilst others risk their lives for him where the bombs dropp and bullets do fly
He and his wife and family in their big house surrounded by high walls the good and easy life enjoy,
The people are blind to the fact that their leader is not very bright
With those different he cannot empathize since his soul is bereft of light
He says what they want him to say and with his words he only fuels their fear
He tells them those different are bad for he knows that is what they want to hear,
It is said in the Land of the blind that the one eyed man is born to lead
He says what they wish for to hear their fears and their phobias he feed
For them he is their seeing eye he magnifies their fear of the unknown
Those different to us we cannot trust our seeds of mistrust we have sown
And in the dark Land of the blind the one eyed man he is the king
His soldiers march for him to war and his praises the people do sing.
