Enlightened Despotism

Give it long enough
And an association of friends
May try to build something
Conceptually and in reality
But we are not all made
To work together
Not that my team
Must be against your’s
Merely complementary
The locus of my efforts
Those boundless disputes
About resources
After you’ve had the best
Of the pickings
Trickling down
Such a mistake
To become just like your adversary
As if you didn’t realise
That your version of things
Must be so very different from his
Once a despot a despot again
Musical chairs
I mean I hope you make it
Except that I’m not going there
