The Wizard of Who?

Like some forgotten little wizard,
behind the curtain hiding
Won’t show his face, or speak a word
but Dorothy will do his biding
He keeps speaking of a life
that they both feature in
She’s hung round, and finally found,
that he’s made out of tin
The throne is empty, when revealed
no god is sitting, reigning
A man who dreams of life beyond -
but only moaning and complaining
She collected a heart upon the way
and courage – she now has plenty
Her brain – she finally switches on
and she sees his words were empty
Dorothy needs to stop this game
She feels that she did wrong
but every time she pulled away
he brought her back, with honey tongue
It needs the courage of a lion
to finally walk away
but to be a coward, and just ignore
is a vile game to play
Of stroking egos she’s had enough,
and she’s finally had her fill
For the wizard does not tell the truth
and probably never will !
