Megalomania Blues


Sweet siren call; drawing me in
If I have to take down the world
Then I'll take the prize and win
Better for the earth to take my embrace
As I enfold the globe and squeeze
I am the savior of the entire human race
Like Midas of old, all I touch is gold
I would not settle for anything less
But utter, and complete control
My heart’s desire, worldwide corporation
Not hapless independent fiefdoms
But servants bowing down; One World Nation

Easier it is to annihilate with one bomb
Than to convince you all, I rule
Can you all see that you are a fool?
I am your mother child that I will calm
I take your anger, your guns, and your rules
Sing you all lullabies so sweet and strong
I will not leave anyone out, all belong
I have the Megalomania blues

Nothing that I do, is without merit
Each step I take is for your own good
I am the Leader King, I will not share it
Listen well little one, do as you are told
I am Jupiter, Poseidon, and Jove rolled into one
I shall wear you down, until you are my fold
Trouble not your mind with cares of thought
I am teacher, seer, and consort for your soul
I will tell you everything you need be taught
I will appoint science as the new dogma all
You shall not question what we reveal
Or you shall be rehabilitated; until I call

Easier it is to annihilate with one bomb
Than to convince you all, I rule
Can you all see that you are a fool?
I am your mother child that I will calm
I take your anger, your guns, and your rules
Sing you all lullabies so sweet and strong
I will not leave anyone out, all belong
I have the Megalomania blues

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
