A Leader Without Backbone
Don't tell me a leader
Leadership is not my hereditary right
Don't tell me that I am a righteous man, rigid in truth!
You are all flatterers
who have created me as a leader.
TO whom I am an object of ridicule
An idol of snow without backbone
Standing before the sun of flatterers
To melt myself away in water drops
When look at my surroundings through a mirror,
I see it become bankrupt because of me!
Don't tell me a leader.
The generation to come shall feel this day
As sharp to them as thorn.
Once I met a man.
He was gentle,
He was modest
He was expert, he was honest
An elegant figure
I asked him'art thou the famous mr....'
He gazed at me but answered me not
Again I questioned'art thou the widely renowned mr...'
He remained unmoved yet.
