some say he climbed a ladder well
he had much to show for it
in many mens eyes
he was a leader

not afraid of stepping on a few
more worthier me than he

he kept a wife, two children, and a dog
it was the station he was on as a child perhaps
charity begins at home

charity

it was a write-off
and much cheaper than advertising
media coverage
merchadising
slush funds

well, maybe not slush funds
but high paying administrator jobs

even the atmosphere has layers to it
so why not society?

he was in the stratosphere
George Jetson

only so much room at the top
that’s why they call it a Pyramid Scheme

“Cry Havoc”
he said offhandedly
his sword still in its sheath

“Let loose the dogs of war!”

of course he didn’t mean himself or his
he had others that would do his bidding
and suitably indoctrinated
they would gladly spill their blood
on a battlefield of his choosing

fodder
maybe more like kindling
to fire his far flung ambitions
after all he had a mountain of Mammon
to build as his memorial

and Oh Yes!
don’t forget the legacy
keep it in the bloodlines
the blood that runs blue
truer than any rivers of red ink
