Pompous and  grandiose
They claim to know all
Obnoxious and disparaging
They belittle you

Dishing out plans for you
Charting life’s course for you
An army of consultants
With no dearth of advice

Looking for perfection
Cloning all to their image
They build an army
Of sycophants

They build tall empires
And gleaming towers
And count their success
In dollars and cents

Freckles and frowns
Are all they can count
As they look at their reflection
Of a life gone by
