Iron Men - Poem by Bill Grace

Tito was an iron man
Sadam was one too.
Given the post partum
Fractures we have seen
It is best that we respect
Machiavelli's ancient wisdom
That is sustained,
That in matters of state
It is better a prince be feared than loved,
Despite the unofficial rose
Observed on Frederick's grave.
