Egypt and Rome all over again



I’ve had time to consider and ponder all of the options

Our carefree abandon our contemplation of ourselves

The wayward children and the world in disarray

The excuses poured out the reasoning that never solves

I’ve listened to them all and don’t care much for logic

Time to reassess and explore other methods of success

The roman empire the best example of excess


Gone gone burnt to death never to rise again so what

A new leader holds the reigns till we’ve had enough

Replace replace there has to be someone much wiser

Spin doctors research consultants spend time together

We’ve arrived at a new dawn this one will do better

Hope rises we’ve learned from the past this one is sure

We ply them with praise before they ever deliver


Roundabout new age past wisdom and despair

We soon return to square one fate worse than ever

Masses grow weary we spin again she’s so much better

Confident smile gleaming white teeth and she’s a size ten

Women come round new woman in town a no header

Give her time they spin and time we give and she’s no better

We put up with it again while they try to fill the shredder


No ethical response children violent men chase the leg

A young child emerges and tells the truth even poets listen

One so young with a mind undone by example is so much better

Teens agree granny smiles no bribes to pay or ransoms

Gets the job done is answerable to no one and is handsome

where did they go those in charge long ago no quip or answer

once the truth comes out you don’t have to shout or pander


why can’t we find people genuine and honest to lead us,

is power such a drug that it’s all we can crave for or need

why do sin doctors pour lies in order to disguise what’s real

so many wise people where so many live in despair

does anyone fear the one and the power of the sun

are we complacent when it’s their problem not ours

pretend your living in roman times when it’ll end in tears…
