Who are these who would feign to lead us,
Letting tastes of power go to their heads?
Spouting policies just to please us,
But doing asinine things instead
They seek a moment – of fame in the sun
Before being plunged into the obscurity
From which they had come
Some remain deluded – thinking they are God’s gift
Drooling after the attention, for which they exist
Should we not show them pity, for their sad vanity?
