Circular Wars

It’s easy to rise
on the called-for occasion
Much harder to stay up
in faced indignation

Sometimes you’ll fall
or, worse yet, be pushed down
Getting back up
is your chance at a crown

If you stand then sit down
all your words are suspicious
Did you mean what you said?
Patriotic? Seditious?

Coronet or a dunce cap?
The headwear choice – yours
Just know we’ll see both
in these circular wars.
