The Orator

In the shadows of a great wall
spanning as far as they could know
from left to right
separating the land from
what they knew
to what they thought they knew.
(Having never experienced.)

They gathered in groups
tentatively at first
wandering from places
long forgotten
They shared common purpose
something vile and hateful
waiting only for the words of something
they could agree upon
to unite.

As time has proven
there will never be a want
for such persuasive
manipulative and greedy

They descended upon the gathered masses
with the words of a higher power.
Whispering lessons
conforming to ideals
their audience desperately
grasped for
as truth.
