Coup De Grace (an acrostic poem)

Cutting the chain of command in half was the catalyst

Utter pandemonium ensued

Order had to be restored quickly

Perhaps regime change couldn’t be bloodless


Determined to see it to the end

Edwardo led his strike force into the Basilica Democracia


Gunfire erupted around him, but soon it was repressed

Reaching the central chamber he was surprised to find it empty

Already the so called senators had fled

Could it be that the national nightmare was over?

Everything went white as the explosion destroyed that hope
