Power Of Rhyming Words - Poem by Slava Olchevski

If knowledge is power, my dear reader
I have the gun of the biggest caliber
If words is the ammo that hurts the most
Then the rhyming poetry is the worst.

I see clearly, that the worst damage
Is from poetry in the English language
Better than laser guided bombs
Satire and humor hit close to home

On top of the mountain, so to speak
There is nothing higher, you have reached the peak
Live in palaces, fly in personal jets
No more challenges, it is boring gents

You love the power, you love your gold
You love yourself, to hell with the world
Manipulate people, destroy the globe
Being puppet-master sucks as a job

When I said it all and made my stake
I realized that I have made a mistake
The poetry’s good, it could make a hit
The problem’s that, no one is reading it...
