Political Problems

Power tends to corrupt Lord Acton said

And absolute power corrupts absolutely

Vladimir Putin a man of power to dread

Absolute power I say it resolutely


Once you cross the line you can’t go back

Unless upon your knees your sins confess

And Putin is way way off the track

His power has put him in a tidy mess


You cannot trust the world inside or out

You stand condemned your conscience tells you so

Without confession you must remain without

Everywhere you look you see the foe


Accountability keeps the world on track

Weakness can be found in every place

Justice must forever bring us back

From corruption’s dark and dismal counter face
