Daily Prompt: Elicit – The Speech

The thought though provoking

Failed to elicit response.

Perhaps it was wording

Perhaps just the pause.

The mission was simple

Win favor today

With masses quite fickle

Help keep them at bay.

So imagine the fear

In presenter’s dark eyes

As he realized no cheer

Would escapes stern crowd’s lips.

It was in that tense moment

Reality set in.

This speech was a waste,

There were no allies.
