Make-believe by Sofia Kioroglou

Make-believe

We have heard it all before
boilerplate platitudes
of love between nations

Crosshatched with devious diplomacy
social solidarity, a contradiction in terms
facile, posturing states of mind

A profound rejection of self-interest
in the name of truth, purportedly not invited
into the fashionable salons of the elite

Always asserting a displacement,
the privileged confidants of secular kings
those hungry panthers prowling for their next prey!
