Legacy

He dreamed of the day
all would bow to his glory
all would adore him.
He would be their loved king.
It would be fantastic, great.

that being king is hard work
with long days, short nights.

Strategic thinking
with long-term consequences
make or break your term.

Exposed on Twitter
false accusations and lies
that’s your legacy.
