Some weeks ago, I dreamed that I was a hitchhiker in a nation of blind people who lived in an underground steam engine. Life was quite all right in Engine Nation, until the leadership of the place was given to a quartet of senseless clowns. After they took office living in Engine Nation turned into a nightmare. The experience brought to mind one of my favorite Shakespeare quotes. So… on the 3rd day of Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month, 2016, I wish to explore those words.
Today’s Prompt – Write a poem inspired by the following quote, from William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “What a terrible era in which idiots govern the blind.”
