Power Mongers

Power empowers a man
To wear a crown of office
A symbol of high status
That stuffs man with vitality
That differs him from equality.

A crown of material value
May dwindle as the human body
Shrinks as to the slipping time
That slides and slips everyone
To the bottom of decay.
Still immaterial and mortal man
Runs behind the looming power
That is out of his reach .
To wither like a moth
To suffer mystic health
Complaints that steal his calm sleep
And making him walk in sleep.

For him the real world
Is ’a fairy world’ where every
Doll plays to the button press
To please his fancy
of ruling the’ fairy world’
where he is carefree
for law is only for others !!!!

Hi Mothi, my friends and I have an english assignment and we would love to use Power Mongers if that is ok? We also need some more information about you and the poem such as where you grew up and went to school and what was your inspiration to write this poem? We are also using Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley and we thought this would be a good poem to compare with it. Your help would be greatly appreciated and we would love any other information about you or the poem that would be helpful. Thank you.
