The Lackeys by Mitja Lovše

Poem

The posters of the ruler
that has no clue on measure
combine some threads to solve
the riddle of the nation he occupied.

We can’t put him away quickly,
because he is surrounded by those,
who reached the high echelons of might
thanks to their propensity to be the toilets.

They could rebel against him,
though a trip to a cemetery show
how many have tried to achieve this
and these were braver than all of them.

They do notice an important thing here –
the posters of the ruler rarely stay safe.
