Power is Devil's Territory
Blood after blood,
Tears flowing down like a river.
Kings killing each other,
Siblings killing each other. Just for thee ‘’Throne’’
Do we really need Kings?
Do we need to be led by snakes?
Who knows any King acting like a hen?
Do we really want to be led by roasters?
Remember the tragedy of ‘’ancestral wrath’’ The story of ‘’Thebans’’
Why do we have kings?
Who wants to be led by Kings with long fingers? Young,
