Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
In politics stupidity is not a handicap.
-- Napoleon Bonaparte
They invented all "noble causes"
enjoying the heights of their careers
getting standing ovations and applauses
letting followers die as some proud volunteers.
Like an invincible king on his high horse
is the politician, that con man in power
duping the masses with no remorse
enjoying view from his ivory tower.
After a long wait his dreams come true
now feeling on the top and so far ahead
throwing crumbs to me, and some to you
expecting gratefulness for a leaf of bread.
Rich are our countries with their resources
rich enough for every single one to prosper
never rich enough for those on high horses
you can't feed enough that greedy monster.
How many have died for a power game
and how many are still there willing to die
"in the name of country or in who else' name
making many a confused mother or a wife cry.
Long before that last of the last heroes is gone
nothing will change with a brainwashed crowd
each of us will still cheer to them like a moron
repeating their slogans all dignified and proud.
