THE FALL OF A POTENTATE

Potentates have almost always got their fill.

They also, almost always wind up in a free fall.

See! Oh see the comical fall of Robert Gabriel Mugabe,

even though his surname rhymes with Zimbabwe!

 

What an admonition to other ailing potentates,

whose surnames rhyme, only with their tastes!

Mugabe dear, I bet you can now see, clean and clear:

to retire isn’t to expire!
