I fear that you are beyond change
....prove me wrong

That compromise to you is strange
....prove me wrong

I think arrogance is your true self
that you think you are a king
and your way is the only one
that none can teach you anything
and you control the tides and sun
....prove me wrong

I don't think you mean what you say
or even care what others think
you think you're on some holiday
....prove me wrong

I fear you'll destroy America
and ruin our economy
you'll make beggars of us all
betraying all that makes us free
if not so, do one thing for me

More the trait of tyrants lol...............stan

author comment

well I'm not a tyrant expert ..
as a scientist having interacted
with such folks
and having studied the human mind
over continents ...
in the passed few decades,
I have come to my own
philosophy of knowledge.
