The Emperor’s New Closet

The Emperor’s New Closet

he never enters through the door
for fear of the poison
of those men’s minds

minds that will not yield
to his prescribed vision
of what freedom should taste like

no, far too dangerous, these men
whose ideas
could halt the advance
of all that he holds dear

they are dogs
worse than dogs
and they shall be kept silent
kept from the light
kept in shackles
kept hidden from humanity

for they are the poison
that dares to dream of other worlds
the emperor can never control
