The Whole World Watches

The whole world watches,
The downslide of a greatness hyped.
A greatness photographed...
Staged and highlighted,
To fantasize what life lived...
Could be and delight.

The whole world watches,
As tears cried from eyes...
Can not keep hearts broken,
Repeatedly by deceivers...
Promoting their lies and alibis,
When truth denied becomes an honesty...
Before unseen and thought offensive.

But today the whole world watches,
And those who spoke of the truth existing...
Hidden behind smiles baring capped teeth,
Are no longer regarded as mavericks or misfits...
Since what the world sees,
Is more realistic than misfits depict.

'They had the whole world,
In their hands.
They had the whole wide world,
In their hands.
They had the whole world,
In their hands...
Until deception brought them to their knees.
Untill deception brought them to their knees.'
