Dictators of the world unite!

The Dictators

An odor has remained among the sugarcane:
a mixture of blood and body, a penetrating
petal that brings nausea.
Between the coconut palms the graves are full
of ruined bones, of speechless death-rattles.
The delicate dictator is talking
with top hats, gold braid, and collars.
The tiny palace gleams like a watch
and the rapid laughs with gloves on
cross the corridors at times
and join the dead voices
and the blue mouths freshly buried.
The weeping cannot be seen, like a plant
whose seeds fall endlessly on the earth,
whose large blind leaves grow even without light.
Hatred has grown scale on scale,
blow on blow, in the ghastly water of the swamp,
with a snout full of ooze and silence

Pablo Neruda

CAN A DICTATOR BE TREATED BY A DOCTOR?

Why does anyone ever want to be a dictator
Unless there's defect in personality factor
That can't be easily treated by medical doctor
To curb the urge to bulldoze like a farm tractor

Power always give a person a sense of superiority and security. And people like to gravitate round the source of power. Because of the wealth/benefit/protection that can be obtained from such power through patronage.Thus the existence of dictators to foster this system of modern day feudalism.

Pablo Neruda joins the impressive pantheon of your Jewish Marxist heroes, Dr Azly. If you were able to discern the true raison d'etre of Jewish Marxism, perhaps your unmitigated enthusiasm for the Chosenites' perpetual Leftist meddling would wane somewhat. Here's a clue : "Every Soviet Politburo boasted a Jewish majority" up until the rise of Krushchev, according to London University's Professor Orlando Figes. His masterly magnum opus (thus far) is a history of the Russian Revolution entitled ' A People's Tragedy' and I heartily commend it to you.

Thank you for allowing me to comment.
