Our Nation – A Rulers’ Playground - Poem by Roland Cho

Rulers in our nation abound
Rulers for whom Ours is a playground
Rulers more vocal than practical
Rulers more tactical than technical
Rulers as they think they are
Rulers’ image we know they mar
Rulers hungrier than those they rule
Rulers more used to misrule
Rulers who ignore those they rule
Rulers who enjoy misuse of the rule
Rulers who shout for change
Rulers who hate to face change
Rulers more attuned to praises and wishes
Rulers less concerned when value diminishes
Rulers who see only evil in fairness
Rulers who pounce in all readiness
A Ruler everyone wants to be
A Ruler whose role is key
