Sound bound

Lampooning accent
Less important than intent
And right to dissent

Structured: Eastern
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
This Asian leader does not have a melodious accent. But the important issues are not with his accent but with his tone, intent and actions. May of his less fortunate and profoundly poor citizens are upset at his policies that have led to unbridled capitalism and foreign participation in native industries that benefits the companies much more than the citizens. His autocratic decision making has negatively impacted the lives of his citizens due to poor planning, ill-advised implementation and capitalist cronyism culture. His foreign policy blunders have dissipated the public purse for poverty alleviation, progress and prosperity for his people by purchases of billions upon billions dollars worth of weaponry from multiple nations including a rogue occupational state. Previous leaders had stature and culture but this leader is one of posture and conjecture and will be sent packing in the upcoming 2019 elections.
Editing stage: 


This Asian leader does not have an accent melodious.
the issues are with his his tone, intent and actions, unharmonious
His profoundly poor citizens are upset at his policies
That starve them to feed foreign companies
His autocratic poor planning, and capitalist cronyism culture
Just entices the corporate vultures
His foreign policy blunders robbed his nation
Now weaponry the only mediation.

Now the only answer seems democracy
To remove this dangerous autocracy.

Neopoet Managing Directors, with Richard (themoonman)

appreciated your efforts to poeticize my last few words prose. Unfortunately, the nation in question is already a democracy that is being run like an autocracy and that is the reason why this leader will be booted out of office in 2019.
