Propaganda 2011

Propaganda

(Thoughts on the day of the rebel’s entry into Tripoli)

 

Followers forever follow,

Leaders always lead.

Give them propaganda

To internalize and need:

Don’t take revenge

When you take over.

Revolutions have a point –

Too many noses out of joint

Lead to revolt.

Repeat: Respect,

Be kind.  The victor

Can afford to give.

For goodness’ sake,

The cake

Is

His!

In the wake of winning

Often starts the sinning:

Promises neglected,

Animal proclivities projected

Onto helpless other’s loads.

Propaganda is an ad –

Good/bad,

No more, no less.

Show mercies infinite: like God.

It’s done.

You won.
