Like The Weeds - Poem by Francis Duggan

Like the weeds of the garden does stifle every flower
This is what happens when people unworthy of such an honor are given great power
Of those who do not admire them their rights they transgress
They marginalize and vilify and them do oppress
Every autocratic leader by violence does rule
And to those who oppose them they are very cruel
In human history so many of their sort far too many to name
Who are only remembered for their crimes of shame
That dictators lack in human people skills is obviously clear
Their only idea of leadership is rule by fear
They only tolerate those who loyal to them remain
All of those who oppose them by them banished or slain
They are like the weeds of the garden who stifle every flower
Those who have themselves invested with absolute power.
