Born To Rule

They mostly apply to the male kind the words born to rule
Some people with great power are known to be cruel
The autocratic leader with power gone to his head
Those who did oppose him you will find with the dead
The great lust for power can lead to acts of shame
The guilty of crimes against humanity are too many to name
Those who did oppose them in mass graves decay
For opposing the regime in their deaths they did pay
The first child of a monarch is born to rule one day
And most of this sort in their ways are okay
It is those who come to power by the gun can cause widespread fear
Of some of them terrible stories we do hear
They believe that they were born to life for to rule
The reason for them to be murderous and cruel.
