 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

The Beast

Our world has been ruled by extremists
calling for us all to bow to their will
leaving those that stand and oppose them
either bow to their will or be killed...

We all once faced the same kind of madness
but we had only a leader by name
the true guts of our great fighting nation
brought forth an exremeist of fame.
Churchill had led by example
though his first shift was guilded with blame
then Hitler rose up to conquer
soon after we were shouting his name.

Now Trump has come to the whitehouse
an extremist to say the least
much like Britain and their dilemma with Churchill
they are scared to unlock the beast...?

But maybe, like Britain in the second world war,
a fighter is what's needed ?
An extremist to fight extremism!
