Like Candy On The Tongue - Poem by Colin Coplin

Up on the hill, day after day,
watching the world around him unfold, from his amphitheater on the bay
Sits a leader of the modern world, on a summer holiday
While the world around him struggles, with the problems of the day

Like candy on the tongue, and the hot Mediterranean sun
all the colors will ere long fade away

All round the world, headless and astray
An old Greek tragedy, acts on the world stage, rewritten for new actors, its a laughable play
With an endless budget, a first recipe for delay
While the leader of the modern world, watches sailing boats at play

Like candy on the tongue, and the hot Mediterranean sun
all the colors will ere long fade away

How could they do without him, It's a laughable play
With an endless budget, on summer holiday

Simple things amuse him
His brother's love confuse him
They are totally adrift / lost without him
he'll come, but not today

Up on the hill, day after day,
watching the world around him unfold, from his amphitheater on the bay

Like candy on the tongue, and the hot Mediterranean sun
all the colors will ere long fade away
