Power

 article about Power

There are some in this world who crave money,


And a minority who craves power,


Those who want money are simpler people,


Those who are power-hungry,


Are in actual fact-


Monsters in the making.


 


Once ascend the throne or seat,


The thinking is-


What can I do today to amuse myself?


And see what I can do?


It would be enjoyable,


For a laugh.


 


Ha ha, power is a game,


People are only digits,


I am supreme,


I will do good for the big picture,


I will think for the people.


But must balance with businesses.


 


The people?


They are not very important.


Businesses drive the economy,


Workers are tools of businesses,


What can I do today?


I love being in control.


 


After years of receiving orders,


I am eager to prove myself,


And roar,


And of course,


A bit of money if can roll into my pockets-


Why not?


  


Life looks good,


The future looks rosy-


For myself,


If people suffer,


It is the micro suffering for the macro-


I already did the best I can.


 


I really enjoy sitting on this throne,


And tasting my new found power,


Hear me speak,


Hear me roar,


And I hiss-


Don't you dare to cross me!
