Radiant Victors

Surrounding themselves
with consultants
wo advise them to do
what they long since decided
for they seek not the best solution
but victory.

Not a victory
that would be best for all
but the one
that is best for themselves.

Driven by arrogance, selfishness, greed,
the need for power and admiration,
barging into the spotlights of the world,
they admit only those
who don’t criticize.

Leaving the others outside,
making their words unheard,
lest what they have to say
be troublesome.

Wanting only to hear and to see
what fits into their world,
the world of their victory.
