Crazy Leaders of the World's Biggies: A Rhyme to Entertain

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Sometimes I wonder if the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it.

-- Mark Twain

I call "biggies" all countries in possession of nukes

whether they call themselves superpowers or not

but their leaders keep acting like crazy spooks

impotent to create peace, just arguing a lot.

With educated advisers -- themselves literate too

they make conflicts, not shying away from wars

about a global harmony they don't have a clue

constantly in business of settling old scores.

When you really think of it -- are they really leading

or merely satisfying their insane greed for power

there's one area where they're succeeding

being untouchable in their ivory towers.

Like some crazy kings dictating some mad rules

they are parading as if worthy of people's trust

swinging their big balls over eight billion fools

with a passion for deceiving resembling lust.

As if in secret agreement to maintain existential fear

with the medical authorities helping there as well

every encouraging smile is as good as sneer

because it's just a bunch of lies they sell.

Well, I am a political cynic, for those who don't know

to me, they are all careerists by their profession

a bunch of crazies running their own show

all sharing the same unholy obsession.
