The Peoples Message is Sacred

-welcome back, welcome home
-our tutored ruler
-on your second hard coming
-to our royal throne
-dont wink and never yawn
-for sleep yet
-the happy toast of your wiskey
-must wait another day and not ripe now
-but with this second crown
-a second time
-after your lessons in the isle of fate
-remember again the root
-of the past storms
-just on a velvet day like this
-the people saw you passing bye
-with nourished manifestoes
-then you pleaded to serve
-but faithfully
-without another word
-they gave their mandate
-but you soon and very soon
-went beserk
-and forgot to deliever
-the peoples message
-then you rode on the white horses
-which the people bought
-with their helpless blood
-and you trampled upon their
-golden message making their
-hearts to bleed with pains
-but they felt the heat
-of garbaged betrayal
-then they murmured and complained
-against the misrule
-and a bloody khaki-monks
-with a bloody eyes and triggers
-emerged form the woods
-to keep you at bay
-but you escaped through the secret windows
-of the palaces
-until the people in clutches of bouquets
-of gun-beats bought a new courage
-and resisted the unprofessinoal oppositions
-which ensured your return
-remember that the throne of rulership
-does not last forever
-hence power belong to the people
-the mandate of leadership
-remains the peoples right and property
-never! never!! i say never!!!
-forget again when you get there
-to deliver the peoples message
-to show them love
-to give the care
-with good hopes for fulfilied promises
-to give peace a chance
-it is the people that reigns
-they only made you the servant leader..
