turning around

Nothing has changed for
the folks in control around here
are still pretty deranged
and there’s a strange atmosphere,
in which little is clear but,
if you put your ear to the ground,
there’s a steer in the sound,
that the will of the people is turning around,
as the magical spell disappears.
