Power consumes,
Devours and assumes

Power overtakes
Corrupts and undertakes

Power ruins, yet covers you
Like a Gaberdine

Power intoxicates
Even as you mediate

Power alienates you
From your loved ones

Power infiltrates
Places where you meditate

Power undermines ability
For you to determine

Power blurs your memory
Also beclouds your reasoning

You think you wield power ?
Oh, No ! Power wields you

Oh Power !
Thou art a Monster !!!
