Vainglorious Leader

A vainglorious leader for a faithless nation
A travesty to those who love God
But beloved by those who pay only lip service
Falsehood and self-deception are his crown
Vengeance and lust for power his scepter
At long last a leader whose lies are designed
To appeal to our truly abominable selves
As opposed to our feigned better angels
