The great dictator, being dictated to
By his own inner voice and ambition,
Declares his is a patriotic mission,
Insists what’s obviously a lie is true;
Dismisses any humane intrusions.
All those who stand hand on heart and salute
The flag, and do nothing to refute,
At least to themselves, such dire delusions,
Are as prisoners locking their own cell doors.
Such a loss leader, who cannot be wrong
Will slaughter others and his own young
By conducting his self-justified wars.
From his seat of power, rules without pity,
Isolated in his capital city.
