A POEM about corrupt leaders.

They want to be the pillars

While hiding in their cellars

Amassing wealth in dollars

Under the guise of white collars

Acquiring mansions in diaspora

With views of the panorama

There’s a problem with the system

It’s in tandem with the ones esteem

They’re never affected by the mayhem

They’d rather it not be them

They do sing the anthem

It means nothing to them

Passing through the bypass

Sitting in their E-Class

Peeping through the dark glass

Spying on the underclass

Hoping none would trespass

Trying to be a badass

When they need access 

They begin to obsess

They start the process

With no recess

It has to be a success

They do it not for the masses

It’s all for their purses
