This poem is not about any specific political figure, just the system as we mortals see.
Because I am a rich man
I can buy who I may choose.
Politicians or just workers
I just cannot lose.

Because I am a rich man
The laws will lean my way
My profit will came so easy
Each and every trading day.

Because I am a rich man
I will be just like a king
What I say becomes the law
In every single thing.

Because I am a rich man
I don’t pay income tax
The people on my payroll
make sure the laws are lax.

Because I am a rich man
I cannot be really broke
My companies may be in debt
But I treat that as a joke.

Because I am a rich man
Shareholders foot the bill
I simply count the dollars
as into my bank they spill.

Even though I am a rich man
A sad day is up ahead
Who will get my lovely dollars
When one day, I wind up dead
