Cardiac Arrest

Cardiac Arrest

Greedy Head of State
Weeping in his grave

A shaded pair of spectacles
Fell from the tiger-clawed face
Of an unprincipled
Head of State
He almost lived above our laws
His rulership, infested with flaws
He grabbed, he murdered,
Plus odds yet uncovered.

Possessed by greed,
He went six feet
Grabbing along nothing
But a worthless raffia mat
Valuing many times less than a coffin.
