The Price of Power


When asked the price of power
I had to take some time
So, I thought for half an hour
And I learned the price of mine

When I came to Valley Forge,
I came up in power quick
Except the rest of my plebe brothers
Wouldn’t let me in their clique
See my efforts they rewarded me
but also, they spawned jealousy
And I learned the price of power
is not gained so monetarily

Power over people is not easily achieved
People use logic and reasoning like good old Socrates
If you use your power to control people by being mean
As soon as you need a shoulder,
you’ll find no shoulder to lean
