why this discrimination

they hate it when a king
looks for an aristocrat queen
and declares his son
as the next king
they call it “a shame”
“to select someone just by name”
“without any other reason…”

they nod their heads in approval
when the tycoon gives up
his empire to his son
or the leader of xyz party
humbly steps aside… for his son
they nod their heads and say
its quite alright, okay

  1. I think here in Australia, and many other Western countries, it is the other way around. The English are quiet happy that the “throne” stays in the family. Holland is the latest example of this. Queen Beatrix will abdicate in April and her son will be the new King. Royalist are delighted and republicans will say just say “shame on you” and “it is not right”.

    The tycoon can do as he likes. But if the leader of a party does it (North Korea) than we call it corruption. India had the Gandhi family who run the show for a long time and India is a democracy.(isn’t it?)

    George Bush in the US pushed his son to be president and his other son manipulated the election in Florida.

  2. Brilliant poem. 🙂
    It’s another example of greed. The ruler knows he can’t hold onto the position forever so he does the next best thing and gives it to family. Sometimes the son is a good leader too, but not usually the best.
