The Empire is corrupt and so it dies

The barbarian is here, just see his eyes
His lack of dignity  and long, long ties
The Empire is corrupt and so it dies

They may bomb   Korea and deny
That errors had been made by their own spies
The barbarian is here, open your eyes

He never listens though he does reply
“I and Thou ”  is a conception wry
The Empire is corrupt and so it dies

He’s not alone,he has his sleek allies.
Yet no-one is his equal or defies.
The barbarian is here,  don’t meet his eyes

The  need for trophy wife, one more to buy
Beauty is a construct for the guys
The Empire is corrupt and so it dies.

The way ahead imagined, we deride.
The children  laugh, yet see the adults  lie
The barbarian is here, follow his eyes
The Empire is corrupt and so unwise.
