Who are you in that strange building...
in that capital city?
Managing our lives...
imposing your laws on we
of greater character than your own.

Are you leaders?
Shall I think myself lost without you?
Tell me the truth just once....
is it I that needs to be led
or you that needs to lead?
Who truly serves the others needs
in this strange relationship?
Maybe you wish to lead me
into thinking I need you.

Maybe you’re like parasites...
using the faults of the masses
to create a need for yourself.

What is your true purpose?
Do you seek to end our faults
to improve our sorry lot?
Or maintain them...
to justify your sorry existence?

Nice piece of writing. It's well thought out and very tight.
