A Dangerous Man - Poem by Francis Duggan

He's popular in his Homeland though in Countries afar
They judge him for his aggression he only talks of war
With great power at his disposal he is a man to fear
And to the biggest blood bath ever we've never been so near.

The lessons still there in the past men have chosen to ignore
And there will be wars and talks of war 'twould seem forever more
And in war there's major injuries and deaths and there are refugees
And boat people in overcrowded boats drowning in the stormy seas.

In the public opinion polls at home he is at an all time high
And the support of the people at present he enjoy
But if he involves his army in a war where many of his soldiers die
The cheers will quickly turn to boos leaving him to wonder why?

Those who loved him a few months ago don't love him anymore
But by other leaders in the past that question asked before
For those who can only talk of war for peace don't have a plan
And those who supported him only months ago now see him as a dangerous man.
