The World Leaders (Allegedly) - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Just because
they don't shoot you in the Head
It doesn't mean to say
that they don't kill you

They spin you
into a world of nothingness
In the race to power and greed

    Lusting after power and greed are usually very short lived. Either you've lost
    your integrity or you will be in constant fear of losing it. A sad state to be in.
    Truly a good write Dave. (Report) Reply

    Words of wisdom. There's a lot that could be added to this, but it's too depressing.The greedy need power to keep satisfying their voracious, insatiable appetites. And all we can do is write poems about it. How unfair! (Report) Reply
