They said they did it to help.
Everyone would know their place.
It protected the kingdom - the world, They said.
Not many objections arose.
After all, it had been the same for over a hundred years.
They had the voice
We were weak
They weren't concerned
If a person or two spoke up against Them.
Fighting for equality
That person was never heard from again.
What damage can one of them do? They said.
Laughing in Their lavish homes
Taking from the defenseless without batting an eye.
Thinking Themselves invincible.
That was Their first mistake.
The deadliest killer.
Letting Their guard down
Luring Themselves into a false sense of security.
But Their biggest misstep was forgetting.
That the biggest fires start
With a single spark.
