The Hegemony Builders

by

 

Who are these, obsequious fools

Lickspittles drawing e’er near

To the flames of power, but fulfilled

By a moment in diadem’s glare?

 

“To arms!” they cry – to all but they

For what good is slavish applause

If spent upon a battlefield –

What then for Caesar’s next cause?

 

Oh mighty lambs, lust for war!

Heedless of misery and pain

Lust for him who makes it so

Suckle the breast of the vain
