Bronze Star - 5,146 Points (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Rulers Of The World


Wake up and take a notice,
With a focus on the motive.
It's time to boot delusions,
And remove all veils to see...
Some people do what they will do,
Just to get attention.
Some people do what they will do,
For giggles and kicks.
And...
Some people do what they will do,
For their satisfaction.
To maximize a recognition,
Without the facts.

The few care less who suffers,
Or who they defeat.
The few care less who suffers,
With a mindlessness they keep...
Believing themselves rulers of the world.

The few care less who suffers,
Or who they defeat.
The few care less who suffers,
With a mindlessness they keep...
Believing themselves rulers of the world.

Some people do what they will do,
For giggles and kicks.
Some people do what they will do,
For no benefit.
Or a profit to gain,
But flush themselves down a drain.

The few care less who suffers,
Or who they defeat.
The few care less who suffers,
With a mindlessness they keep...
Believing themselves rulers of the world.
With a doing done,
To hurt everyone.
With a doing that brings ruin to occur.

Wake up and take a notice,
With a focus on the motive.
It's time to boot delusions,
And remove all veils to see...
Some people do what they will do,
Just to get attention.
Some people do what they will do,
For giggles and kicks.
Believing themselves rulers of the world.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
