Powerful he stood leader of the mighty nation
once they set the standard
for its authority self-approval and egotism
an economy of immense wealth
the glory days have faded no longer in control
lost now that almighty role!
Corruption and mistrust sour the ruling party
fear of another invasion
has weakened its structure as well as self belief
with more violence flaring
law enforcement is under a rising onslaught
where in the middle caught!
Other major powers are an unpredictable threat
they seem to follow satan’s law
where humankind are of no importance at all
our destruction a by-product
the separation between good and evil merging
the annihilation of cultures surging!
Will future leaders guide us from these dark forces
or take us further down fatal courses?
The Foureyed Poet.
