Relative Delusion

Fear not the fascist despot
or his cousin, Commie Czar;
it won't be any monarch
who rules the melded masses
there among the roaches
once the end of days is nigh.
A superhero slouching
won't come close in his powers.
Death, nor even Taxes
can touch What Men Should Dread:

The woman drenched in diamonds
cast upon her by the pens
of a dozen wayward poets
who wasted their best words
on a princess proud of nothing
that a queen would never sell--
a lady made immortal
who'll serve the drinks in Hell.
