The murky waters are dark and deep,
receiving the dead while the people sleep.
The shadow government, enamored of power...waits
for the newly empowered to meet their fate.
Take up the book of destiny and turn the page.
Does the great deceiver take the world stage?

Marchmadness,
   I just slipped in for a minute and saw your title, being drawn to your poem immediately. A nice conservation of words said poetically.
   Nice to read you again.

Aren't all governments shadowy?

He does.

One ladle serves the soup that feeds the mouths of the many.
