April 1 Man in the Iron Mask

The Man in the Iron Mask

Our D'Artagnan, where can he be?
Today's Paris is starving,
our king cares more for money
than people's futures, carving

a deep divide between the haves
and the more diverse, have nots,
to subject and control our lives
locked behind an iron mask.

Who will lead us out from the restrictive,
cold, hard metal cage that chafes its captive?

A classic! in all the ways- appealed to my sense of romanticism from my old favorites - The Musketeers to the Man bound within his mask, to a sense of modernities struggle, current build on the backs of the classic. Many Thanks
