A drop of arrogance
Goes straight to the mind
It’s intoxication kills insight
Next, it attacks the eyes
Which fail to see others’ plight
It impairs the hearing
As they only hear what they like.
It also affects reasoning power
As all others in sight
‘Easy to manipulate.’
‘Puppets’, ready to dance
‘Dummies’, over eager to obey!
Arrogance accompanied by power
Creates insane authoritarians
Who think it is their right
To enslave all humanity
Who think they are always right.
Emotionally challenged, these
Arrogant autocrats fail to bond
With family, friends or employees,
As it is below their dignity to
Respect others’ self-esteem.
But he had more than just a drop
He had stumbled upon a draught!
So arrogance had wreaked havoc on
Whatever was left in his mind
All he could do was, install puppets
To dance to his tunes.
A self-proclaimed despot
This inebriated monster
Lives in a fools’ paradise.
He either disregards History
Or doesn’t have the IQ to understand
That Hitler was a loser!
