Power is a promise

To uphold the less deserving

While sooth

The higher earning

 

Tie to tie

The young and the old

Why

Fortune favours which of them is bold

 

Power is a pledge

To keep all in check

But all are on a ledge

The daring is the pick

 

More outspoken

And more logic laden

A spirit’s that’s broken

To break the maid and the maiden

 

Power is a balance

To make sure are all in

But not a chance

Those who lose can win

 

So is power pure?

Knowing it will cleanse?

Knowing for sure

Offense and defence?

 

Power is hungry

And it needs human sacrifice

Powerless are angry

Hope is the ultimate price
