Vulnerability

Rating: 5.0
People in power,
From the highest phobia suffer
With an unseen enemy
They are in shadow fight.
Even an innocent joke, seen as a mutiny
A gentle murmur, a conspiracy!

The mightiest thus turn,
The most vulnerable in effect!

People in power suffer from the phobia and people who work for them suffer due to that. Nice poem.

True. That is why power tends to corrupt. Obsession with power and control makes people vulnerable - even to the slightest criticism. Great insight!

When people in power become obsessed with holding on to their power they become paranoid about everyone around them! Beautifully written!
