The Rule

A dream, after years of hard work

I finally made it, the leader of the

World. The top gun, big cheese.

Even though it’s only been a tiny

Part of the process and thought

I’ve put into this job, choosing my

One rule to apply too the rest of

The world. Most leaders choose a

Humanities law, but I am undecided.

The memories come rolling back

Hundreds of cold nights dreaming

Of what to choose, no decisive

Answers time, and time again.

I waste days of work by jotting down,

Idea after idea. Tired, exhausted by

the relentless recurrence of this thought.

Finally i get to sleep and I pray for “the

Rule” to be revealed to me. And alas

It was.
