On Whose Authority?
Considering an age-old problem, I
Regarded the content of a film that
Observed the difficulty of the Fat
Measuring the Slim, when taxed to the sky.
Who can say what’s right for every guy?
Either the common man becomes a mat
Lining leaders’ halls or an autocrat
Living like the apple of his own eye.
Oliver Cromwell faced a decision
Like that, when his king asked for more money:
Instead of meekly giving permission,
Vilifying the English monarchy,
Enacted a Protectorate, a schism
Resulting in civil war/anarchy.
