Memo to the Leader
by William Walling

Could the course of World War II, particularly its outcome, be changed? Sure, all you need is time travel -- and practice. But it still may not be quite that simple. So e..

Do you believe in Fairy Tales
and happy ever after?
One day your prince will come
and fill your life with laughter

When I'm looking through the bottom
of a glass of Jack
Then I believe and I dare to dream
to take a hit of crack

Cause anything can happen
When you're lying
to yourself
What's the point in trying
to pretend

Once upon a time
Was just a line you fed me
Well I guess it was always your dime
But now see where it led me

I call out
for rescuing
but no one comes my way
no one comes to save the day

so I open another bottle and take another toke
cause when I'm sober reality crashes
and I find myself strung out and broke

Broken apart, coming away, ripping at the seams
You build me up then break me down
You tell my anything is possible
I can reach that gilded crown

But it's lies
lying on your tongue

better that you had spoon fed me truth
and let me wade in the dregs of reality
than filled my head with lies
about the goodness of humanity

Give me a drink and sit a spell
I'll give you the real deal
What is reality anyway
Just who's behind the wheel


Daylight’s coming and shadows flee
Now I'm scared at what I'll see
Fiction or reality
Lift the glass, now I'm ok
cause I'm seeing through my crystal
It ain't no ball but it's magic
that'll get me through the day
Cause I need it to see my prince
riding on his white steed
to rescue me from life
to fulfill my need, my greed, my lust for life
He'll take me for his wife

pour me another glass
to help me keep up this farce....

This really is a stark reality of so many. And I think you have captured the emotions all too well. AS only one who's been there can tell.

Very good.

This very much represents a harsh reality, and you express it well. I think it's just to wishy-washy in it's style for me to give it the full 10, but the content alone is worth the poem. Bravo.
