Some may think that this poem is about the current president of the USA. And if you think that then Google the leaders around the globe. Many ships are in dire need of some kind of lawful mutinies, but not by the far right or the far left. --- "Vanity, Vanity, All is Vanity, and chasing after the wind!"

In those days when rulers were gods

And bloodlines dictated ascension

An idea came about, in Greece, no doubt;

Democracy, a man-made invention.


But after all the decades of electing leaders

And others pretending under dictatorial rules

We find ourselves in the same old boat

With the stinking rich captain and his crew of fools.


Wealth buys power and power gains wealth

And the end result is often insane.

When a king is a fool we blame inbreeding.

But when we elect a fool, who is to blame?


We are beguiled by lies from the right and the left

Then they call us to arms when unity is needed.

They pretend to be what we want to love;

That's how dictatorial fields are seeded.


Presidents come and Presidents go

With Prim Ministers fading like the morning dew.

But the damage that's done by the money-made kings

Should be nothing surprising, 'cause we know what fools do.
