Removing His Name From Their Friends' List




Removing His Name From Their Friends’ List



Regret any odd, oily tyrant,

with a macho twist on his way to a rough nowhere,

trying to see if he could run down

the Earth’s battery 

by using his profane lure to breed thralls,

turning a casual incident, regular idea,

or random reference into a burn,

the censured odor of sabotage.


He, the first to suspect strange talk

of those who won’t comply with the rules

he imposes, or the hodgepodge

of antics few have felt would benefit themselves.

He loves to sit at the bad table,

and brew up vague chaos.


The irresponsible ruler who will only decree

conduct highly disapproved by

everyone but his own ego.
