42 Days with Huck Finn 23:42

Sketch from (or inspired) by
Charles Demuth

The Democratic Played

Rigging up scenery for 
a heist lit by candles. 
Tragedy played for eager Marks,
(nothin' much happens here)
Martyred Men to Regal Thieves 
Commoners sing old tunes, 
the ones about Freedom
from Tyrants, gold filled Coffers. 
Too poor to die, they know the smell:
rottenness of Kings.
