Dictators - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Sadness engulfs dictators
For they lack human emotions
The fierce forces behind our tears
The overpowering hand in our hearts
The silent hug in our smiles
And the overwhelming powers in our laughter
Permanently erased from the hearts of dictators

They hide behind their power
Shielding themselves from the protruding eyes
Barricading their sadness within their hearts
Imprisoning their only human emotion
In a permanent state of isolation
The penitentiary of their hearts
Where demons roam free
And evil erupts with the highest forces
Soiling their hands with the blood of the innocent
