A DICTATOR ON HIS DEATH

Brutal and scourged bodies in fear,
This road; walked miles in silence,
Poor masses voices out in pain,
For a tyrant who never learns from the past.

His holiness on a second arrival, 
On an errand to a stone heart,
Watered by a word, to the old wicked pharaoh,
What a re-occurrence?

How long can a strong heart lead you tyrant?
What direction would that be?
A mighty dictator eliminated by an apple.
What an Eve that led a dictator to destruction?

A dictator on his death,
Lowed below the open mud,
Naked.
Empty casket with all rites observed.

As those anthems came recurring,
Guns in the air to bid farewell to a dictator.
Our halcyon days will be restored,
Jubilation, celebration greets the exit of the ‘dark guggleman’.
