The show has been done,
the emperor was unmasked,
yet no one says anything at all,
his lackeys continue with the usual.
Many depress over this fact –
too many for that to be ignored –,
though the good-natured ones nod
to teach us of the new normal they get.
These accept a lot for granted
despite that destroying the world,
but these shall rarely suffered the ills,
which shall come with the new normal.
The show has been ready again,
the emperor put on his mask to go.
