Dictator

To those who forgive me I loathe you for you are weak No your voices are not worthy you spineless living dead things worthless as dumb dogs If not incarcerated I would do it again would squeeze everything out of you land pride dignity your life No do not say you forgive me you are not gods You have no power to forgive you are impotent After I vanish I will haunt you to your deaths and there I will be waiting to squeeze the light from your soul until nothing but darkness ----------------------------------------------------- from my 6th book-length ms. "Dictator" was first published in 'The Recusant ' (UK)

Dah, Thanks for your recent read of "The Soul's Path." I enjoyed your comments on my poem very much. About "Dictator," the one is a marvelous write. There are so many historical and contemporary dictators in this world who certainly match up with your words here, both in their very words and deeds on how they view and treat people. I've written at least three poems on Vladimir Putin. Your words here made me think about those writes, and other dictators. Outstanding!! SEVEN/FAV!! Cheers, Gary

You're welcome, Gary, and thank you for this spot on feedback. I was reading about incarcerated dictators and how they carry their convictions to the end, how hateful they are, how delusional they are ...

This really pulls out the fact that there is a dark side in life!
