MAN IN POWER

Standard

Women: He
walked
from dusk
to dawn in purple damask

All: He must be rich

Men: He
smiled
for hours
exhibiting his powers

All: He must be mad

Youths: He
killed
for festivities
concealing shady activities

All: He must be a snitch

Women: He
jeered
behind closed doors
and claps as tears pours

All: He must be bad

Youths: He
drank
ate and laughed
sang and laughed
his heart pounded

All: He must be sick

Men: He
frowned
his heart pounded
his body surrounded

Women: He must be dying

Men: He is dying!

Youths: Must he die?

All: He has died!
