King in a House

It must be amazing to be king in a house

where you’re a tyrant and never at fault.

 

Kingdom built on fear

Pacified by Stockholm Syndrome induced gestures of affection

Puppeteer-like control provides only  love’s resemblance

 

It must be amazing to be king in a house

where you’re a tyrant and never at fault.

Such realities don’t even exist in dreams.

Look around and see what your tyranny has cost.
