Tyrannical Rex

He believes he is perfect,

The Gods’ answer to fate.

And they can all now retire,

For they had taken the bait.

 

He’ll dominate every action,

He’ll defend every crime,

If it’s done to the benefit

Of his imperious climb.

 

He recruits many minions

Who fetch and carry his deeds,

For to him it is given

That they’ll kowtow to his creed.

 

He will squelch any protest,

He’ll ridicule any voice

That dares not speak his glory

Or demands to have choice.

 

He is crass, and he bullies

Lashes out at dissent,

Because to him it is treason

If people still seek consent.

 

He is cruel, he is shallow

He full worship expects,

He will break every branch

To feed his Tyrannical Rex.

  1. Na’ama Y’karah,

    What a perfect description of NPD. I’ve had the displeasure of dealing with three poster children for the disorder in my lifetime. I could give tyrannical rex their names, but I’ll refrain. Well done.

    Shalom,

    • Thanks, Rochelle … yes, I think some of us have known some of these a bit closer than we’d want to, and many of us must know at least someone (cough) who fits the description at present. …
      Poor T-Rex. I really didn’t mean to give it a bad name …
