Power the taste of all
created, manipulated and fashioned
in a way that suites the beholder;
just like wine, some are sugary
some are not.
Of course i see you are alcoholic.
Only the strongest of heart
and head can contain thee or see oneself
dangled to stupor by the sober.
Servant beholders of you are
envied for stake sake and lack sake.
Knowledgable beholder is dethroned by
Corruption to enthrone a novice to
I imagine if you are to be a being,
What will you do to vindicate your utility?
Corruption manipulates the novice
For accomplishment of its ulterior motives.
To achieve you is to conque mountains
But to lose you is like a snip of finger.
Your paths are filled with
Jingoism, tricks, rigging
quagmire and gerrymandering
All equals power tussle
Caused by nepotism minus
Benevolence plus ethnicity.
If power is part of human body
Many would have cut it off
Because its tony and tonic.
