The fat white man
Built a castle
And ruled within his walls
Lived with impunity
and flowing wealth
A harem for his use
and other toys
spiced and prepared
He slumps
In his foetid
white
flesh

Those without
devalued
cheap
Turned cheapness to gold
Built better
Bigger castle

The fat white man
Never noticed the decline
The decaying walls
The deserters
The fall

Time
is
Up
