A Dictator's End! - Poem by Ramesh T A
The end of a dictator is a lesson to many militants in the world.
Except Charles de Gaulle no military dictator achieved anything.
Yet dictators are there in power deceiving people’s democracy
Exploiting all with rich-poor and poverty and unemployment crises!
Benevolent dictator is rare to see in the history of the world so far!
Democracy is the best to embrace rather than relying on dictators
Whether it is equal rights, freedom and development or liberation;
But many are relying on slogans rather than practical remedy ever!
North Korea, Burma, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Cuba do badly;
Venezuela, Pakistan, China, Chechnya, Sri Lanka next in row do so!
These countries should remember the story of Idi Amin of Uganda
And also Rameses II who as Ozymandias lay scattered in the desert!
The fate of dictators is the same as they were against the will of God!
However arrogant, powerful they are they all have to kiss the mud!
Though Napoleon, Hitler met with tragic end Alexander died of disease!
Though they conquered the world they failed to conquer their own self!
Ignorance of the masses opens opportunities for dictators to exploit;
Now democratic dictators exploit masses luring them with free gifts!
Giving sops corrupt political dictators steal riches of innocent masses!
Only education and health programmes help people change situation!
