      Inside the enclave,
      Rock of roguery,
      Empress revels in vanity.
      She frolics about in splendour
      And swims
      In ocean of greed.
      Vain daughters prattle on platitudes
      As overzealous suitors,
      Seekers of public offices,
      Of patronages, lucre
      Await opportunity to pounce,
      To take brides,
      Tickets to rulership home
      In unholy union.
      Loud laughter
      From inner chamber reverberates,
      Where taciturn Emperor
      Reigns in tacit conspiracies.
      Where rogues with cigars
      Perched between lips
      And cups
      Of stupor inducing liquors
      Clutched between crooked fingers
      Juggle nation's destiny.
