BURNING CANDLE

The dictator is cool and resilient

relentless he is

unwilling to abdicate

the throne

albeit stiff

resistance from the masses

fighting from the very bottom

striking back

as a last resort.

Dictator is a fiddling Nero,

the more blood is shed in the land

the more rebels perish

the more delightful he is.

As his

merry-making gradually progresses in his durbar

with his Queen and

danseuses and singers

wine and dine

enjoy dances and songs

he is a fiddling Nero

oblivious of

the advancing rebels

surrounding his fortress.

As he continue merry-making

he knows not

the candle of his life

is about to burn out

and with the merry making

reaching its crescendo

the candle burns more

brightly as never before

when the flame is

about to die down without a

whimper.
