The Emperor

The emperor knows he’s naked. He thinks he’s beautiful that way. The people looking at him have clothed him in power. He will use the power against them, but they don’t see it that way. I was blind but now I see hasn’t penetrated the minds of the people yet.

  1. The Emperor is all dressed up and naked. He’s resplendent in the notion that he’s all-knowing and all-powerful. He’s cloaked in the thought that he’s better than me, you, and everyone else. But his delusions are all he’s got. He has no job, no woman, no friend in the world, no money, not a pot to piss in.

  2. Ah, the Emperor with the tiny hands is really very well aware of what a disgusting creature he is. As a matter of fact, he behaves obnoxiously so often to hide his insecurities. He can’t stand himself. He knows what he is. Those who continue to believe in him are afraid to admit the truth. They are afraid to admit they were wrong. The greater percentage of citizens now are pointing out the obvious truth. The Emperor is not only mentally imbalanced but seriously dangerous to anything and everyone in his path. He will wreck havoc all over the world. Signs of things to come are very apparent now.
