Sun Setting On Civilization

Lines were drawn
In the darkened sand,
He told nobody
Of his true plans
He wanted the world
To himself, a kingdom
He played the games
Convincing followers
He would bring joy
Back into their lives
No more would they
Need to bother
Thinking for themselves
He had plans
And means
To take over
Make all robots
No more freedoms
No more thinking
The only joy
He brought
Was for himself
He was now
The ruler and
Only thinker
Of the whole world
The rest of us
Became yes-men
