A modern monarchy

A modern monarchy.

Please spare it a thought,
This monarch of new.
Rare crazes have caught,
And opinions too.

No more Kings and Queens
To instruct the young,
Just movie star teens
With such outgoing tongues.

To the top they have snuck
Through no visible brain.
But the better you look
More power you gain.

Now don’t get me wrong,
I do see their skill.
Yet politics from songs
Can throw you downhill.

But to no surprise,
With a Pig in the chair,
Youthful sets of eyes
Look away and lose care.

Their opinions and views
Are driven from those
Who wear such nice shoes
And buy fancy clothes.

So morals are lost
In a laughable land,
Based on how much things cost
And quantity in hand.

And role models form
As honour does wear
Through a teen-crazed swarm
At the latest premiere.

Here’s Paris! And Brad!
As the people do scream.
They squeal as if mad,
It’s just like their dream.

And finally! They shout
For the man of the hour.
Tom proudly walks out
With royal-like power.

Now in his spot
He’s all waves and smiles.
But at home he’s not
As when down the red aisle.

He plots and he mulls
In a nationwide cult.
His wife he inward pulls,
Still barely an adult.

And years later, it seems
Since it all began.
No longer a teenage dream,
They live by this man.

In the paper today;
“He ended it all;
In a horrible way.
They all took the fall.

He took his own life,
But not before taking
That which was his wife’s,
As she simply stood baking.”

Then millions chose,
As Tom did know best,
Took up knives and bows
Into their own chests.

And through this they learned,
Although far too late;
A generation lost
On a singular date.

In present future times
Actors no longer pry,
And present only writers’ lines
Into the public eye.
