Lesson






The leader
Checks his back
For blade's scars
Signs of attack
Then dons again
That confident air
Which shows no sign
He knows what's there
Bitter irony
That on a whim
One he made
Now unmakes him
Bitter lesson
A leader learns
There or not
The world still turns
And gratitude
Though shown with grace
Many times has
Bitter second face
