The Better Paragons of Our Nature

He was labeled a paragon of the left
“And rightly so”
The other side said
But there was something insidious going on
Something that went bump in the midday sun
Only to level out and hide in the dark

Even the atmosphere was captured properly on cameras
Correct angles had to be verified
So that death or violence could be associated with something else
And a withering lens could see blood spilled on the bases as a home run

Truly a different age
A gilded goblet
Given by up above
