Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 111
This Man
















This man is the Man

Who’s moment has come

To snatch up the gauntlet

To brandish and run.

To run in the face

Of resistance from might,

Chaotic recession

And unemployed plight.


To stand and defy

(Big money that fights),

To rectify wrongs

Which antagonize rights,

To go up against

That most dangerous foe,

The big wealth behind

The Establishment Show.


Vested interests will not take

Interference from the top,

Adjustments are expensive

And MUST be made to stop.

Should Barrack keep the pressure on

The vested interest clan,

My fear is their reaction

Will deprive us of this man.


For make no mistake

Remove him they will

Should he continue to press them

To swallow that pill.

To desist and relent

In their headlong pursuit,

(At the expense of the nation),

For bottomless loot.


A bullet shot

Across the gap

Removes the problem

Fast and flat.

Removes the thrill

That does enthrall

We admirers

One and all.
