Power Trip - Poem by Khaleel Steir

Now that you got promoted you think you run things now
Stop acting like my privacy is your business
Ha! You say you're just doing your job when you abuse your power
Though, you're new to having responsiblities
And yeah, you're only human but your ego is like a hot air balloon
Stick a pin in it, let some air out, you're not that important and play your role
For you're ruining people's lives while only helping people on your secret agenda
Bending the rules for some while abiding the rules for others
Corruption flows through your veins like poison
It's changed you-in the worst way
But me telling you to change won't help, it's on you
I'm just pointing it out, for you have become the corrupt figure you hate
Power changes a man, and you've given in
