Tyrants

History is something

From which we have to learn

Since the dawn of man

Failure leads to oppression

A vacuum filled by inhumanity

The callous and the cruel

We find suddenly us they rule

It is our fault if we have failed

To learn lessons from the past

The lessons that have led to wars

Millions killed and laid to rest

We’ve seen before what happens 

When cruelty reigns supreme

In the hands of tyrants

It must never happen again
