Authorities used to be regarded
much higher than the simple man
who was assumed to be retarded
whereas they boasted what they can.
Looking up to those who represent,
the makers and the shakers of the world,
seems natural to people living bent
by hardship that life constantly has hurled.
Respect, however, surely must be earned
with fair and humane moderation.
Power and money easily are burned,
knowledge remains in man’s consideration.
