© Don’t Back the Wrong Leader

(Excerpted from Mental Streams: Poems of the Heart and Soul)

History is alive
with people who have decided
to back the wrong leader.

A leader who is determined
to forsake his country’s needs
for his own greed.

This does not bode well
for the nation’s survival
as it pulls the country apart
into divisive rivalries.

It is not in people’s best interests
to continue to enable a tyrant
who will eventually fall
from the public’s grace.

Also, history will not be kind
to those who support a disgraced ruler.
When we look back into time
it won’t be just that leader
who is held in disrepute.
It will also be you.
