Dictator’s Tale.

Dictator’s tale was created thanks to inspiration given to me by Belarus protests in 2020. Lukashenko has been holding the strings of power for too long and the time has come for him to leave.

“I must confess, he said, I am amazed, I been their leader for so long, and this is how they repay, my diligent and honest, my active, busy and determined, Service for my people?”

The sounds of riot,
Blared outside the window,
Glass shaking to its core,
So did the wooden table.

Man sitting in his chair,
His fingers fully folded,
Chin resting on both hands.
A lonely tear of sweat,
Fell down his shiny baldness.

I must confess,
He said,
I am amazed,
I been their leader for so long,
And this is how they repay,
My diligent and honest,
My active, busy and determined,
Service for my people?

He looked at his young son,
Who knew no such worry,
For a moment his eyes got kind of blurry,
He wanted to deliver,
The State to his young heir,
It seemed that now,
This deal needed some repair.

I hate you father,
Said young heir,
The people hate you,
So am I,
For your corruption and deceit,
Your cruelty and wrath.

This is State,
But not your business,
I’m rather tired of it all,
Give the power to the people,
Your time has come to pass.

How dare you,
Small rat,
Speak to me like that?
I am your father,
And dictator,
I’ll teach you tiny brat.

The angry despot took his belt,
And started smacking young heirs bottom,
Doors have opened,
Very wide,
Showing despots weakness.

Citizens have entered,
Stopping old mad man,
They took him to main square,
So he could hear his judgment,
But all he thought about,
Was anger of his heir.

Dictator’s Tale. Story of wrath.
