Unquotable quotes: Witch-Doctors and Tribal Headmen - XXV Part Two

Unquotable quotes: Witch-Doctors and Tribal Headmen – XXV (Part Two)

Which Asian “King” would crown himself “Emperor” during an elaborate theatrical ceremony while facing and exhorting the ruins of his Illustrious Ancestor’s capital?
Which commoner army captain would seize power through skill and grit to crown himself “Emperor” with his own hands and appoint his siblings kings, queens, princes and princesses of his conquered territories?
Which dear old Royal Dame Head of State reads the Racing Post from cover to cover every day?
Which pauper prince might not have received even a secondary school education had it not been for marginal largesse loot only to open the royal gates to thugs, rogues, swindlers and pimps of the moneyed kind?
Which royal playboy groomed by a dictator would go off on an elephant hunt funded by the State coffers when his people chalk up 30% unemployment figures? 
Which Far-Eastern village chieftains issuing from a self-appointed Hindu “king” appoint themselves sultans with rights to elect kings from their ranks claim in the process descent from Alexander the Great?
Which class of hereditary princes by caste set themselves the task of deflowering the greatest number of virgins presumably to convince themselves of their virility while their subjects battled their conquerors to free themselves?
Which heir-apparent to an illustrious throne surrender his “god-given” rights for a commoner divorcee only to abandon her to her “chauffeurs” while he cubbed little “choir” boys in one wing of the hereditary castle?
Which future king would abandon his virtuous “princess” spouse for a divorcee only to hoodwink her for Russian prostitutes in another capital?
Which Pacific son of the Rising Sun would make a pact with hereditary warriors in uniform to rape the down-trodden masses of the Asian Continent?

How many the centuries scientific truths lay chained and condemned in deep dungeon irons by Witch-Doctors who feared the debunking of their “holy” texts?
How many the orphaned hostel boys sworn to dumbness through soul-splitting shame and psychic drubbing stuffed by bible-quoting Witch-Doctors?
How many the virgins and dejected spouses gone to confide and beg for solace stuffed by Witch-Doctors chanting mass and morning prayers?
How many the orphaned virgins sacrificed to temples as dancers for a fee at the mercy of Witch-Doctors’ whims?
How many the billions forced to abandon common sense and reason for fear of the fire and brimstone promised by Witch-Doctors if they did not swallow the dictates of their “holy” texts and hasten to slaughter, sack, soil, slay, sully,suppress, shame, slander, sicken, shun,swindle, slap, swat, slog, sling, spit, split, scuttle, soften, straighten, sink, stink and sell their souls to keep them (Witch-Doctors) in place? 
How many the Witch-Doctors who would anoint themselves as Messiah-Kings in the centuries to come?
How many the Witch-Doctors still to escape from the World in order to find refuge in the Cuckoo’s Nest?
