Duterte's Retulia - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Tyrant Mezentius of Agylla
brings to mind Duterte in Manilla.

Mezentius bound hands to rotting hands,
faces to rotting faces;
bound the living to the dead.

At last the people arose
and destroyed him
and the nation Retulia
to where he had fled.

Topic(s) of this poem: revenge, tyranny, tyrant
