A roller coaster of kings


Just like in the biblical days
A roller coaster of kings,
Graced the land,
Each ruled by the misunderstandings of God's teachings,
Learnt nothing and left no legacy of lessons,
A roller coaster of kings,
Like a worn out tyre rolling infinitum,
Leaving no mark of note,
A roller coaster of kings,
Like shepherd after shepherd,
Lost sight of the cattle,
And led the mind be dominated by the pain of loss,
A roller coaster of kings,
Lost on the trail of trial and error,
And led the mind be dominated by the pain of loss,
Thus lost sight of thought and hegemony,
Trial and error is not a dynasty in the making,
Politicians come and go,
Not by will but by a test in the meeting of the neighbour's wants,
Not of relatives and friends,
NN 14/05/12
