Those Who Would Lead Us

Those who would lead us,

Are they really leaders

Or simply pompous puppets

Of the wealthy establishment,

Enamored with self- perceived prestige,

Travel perks and a piece of the public purse,

Those who would lead us,

What have they done,

What have they built,

What have they accomplished,

Are they really leaders

Or simply polished,

Glib, political illusionists

Adept at making real leaders

Seem less than what they really are.

  1. Definitely pompous puppets!! I don’t think they’re real anyway….call me crazy…but I’m sure the real rulers of this world…we’ll never see. Actors play their parts for them – badly. Love the piano by the way – very relaxing! 🙂
