Warrior Spirit - Poem by Adrian Paul

People these days, selfish they are;
Money, people kill for it, for it can get them a new car.
But is that it?
Is the only loyalty people have to money?
Guns, oh what a cheat.
Cowardice, common these days, no more brave warriors, no more tribes, no more noble leaders.
I could not possibly heed your greed.
Bombs, gas, traps; what have we become?
All that pain, for a tribe? No. For we have become slaves to money, money is a dictator, more then Adolf Hitler or Benito Mussolini or Joseph Stalin ever were.

These days people get other things to do their dirty work for them, assassins, dogs, henchmen, soldiers, they do not fight beside their masters, they fight without them.

Politicians, they bare no scars,
Yet they are responsible for so much death, so much misery, so much conflict.
Tribe leaders are not like politicians, they fight, but lead also, they have the same treatment as everyone else in their tribes, but they lead also, why can`t politicians multi-task like this?
Surely experience is what we need,
Not this lust and greed, we must do a brave deed, we must have a fearless, brave, loyal, selfless, experienced leader, and we must have loyal people, we must educate this planet in the ways of ancient tribes, far away from any bribes.
