Runaway?

EPITAPH ON A GENERAL

Perfection, of a kind, was what he was after,
the tale they perfected was easy to understand;
they knew human folly like the back of their hand,
to show such great interest in things indiscreet;
it was published, respectable senators burst with laughter,
he lost his command, was done in by deceit.

REALITY

age of disbelief
nothing surprises
the word
be
is denied
all is get now
life is
a dream
fantasy
viewers
listeners

very few
do
everyone wants service
but
not serve

reality
and life
are everywhere
one thing
is crystal clear
loyalty

is rare
