How the mighty and foolish fall
And how frail they become
Mobarik has also lost
Like all those before him!
Forget the world O my heart
And start focusing on Him
Who needs to be remembered
And revered and loved like none.
I belong to Him
I am His in total
Why go astray and mull
On the rise and fall of fools!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Sad but true. The power-hungry despots of the world never do learn the lessons written on the scrolls of time and crave and do all they can to win wordly power, glory, selfish lusts fulfilled, greed allowed to increase without any checks and limits....till the Hand of Allah/God Almighty strikes and makes them fall....and look as they really are: frail and meek, nothing but human, but ridiculed by one and all....Inspired by the BBC news flash about Egyptian President Hosni Mobarik;s resignation.
