The road to power


The road to power,
it's walked with patience,
And littered with bodies,
It's bright,
And it's dark,
It’s been walked in groups,
It’s been walked alone,
Few have seen the end,
Many have been lost along the way,
It’s more seductive than love,
And failure is more painful than a broken heart,
It may bring you happiness,
It may take your sanity,
Now walk with me my brother,
Towards light and darkness,
Together and alone all the way.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
