The Tyrant’s Own Goal

If you have to frighten
Multitudes
And threaten them
To get your way;
For them to follow
And obey,
On pain of horror and of death,
Then you’ve already lost
And,
Not only do you waste
Your time,
Your energy
And breath
But such intent,
Spent in control,
Is on your own soul
Weighed the cost.
