690 : Born to Rule

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: cunning, degenerate and emaciated.

Born to Rule

There’s a kind of 
smugness there;
A cunning smirk 
or two.
A high sense 
of entitlement,
With ribbons, 
regal blue.
Not coy,
They ignore 
the hoipolloi,
To rule 
by selling fears
Backed by 
degenerate affairs
And emaciated ideas.

  1. Surely you are glad baby George paid a visit..where are those dingoes when you need them..

  2. Well slotted together, just about sums up a few people I could mention. Nicely!

  3. Intent
    To rule
    by selling fears

    One must certainly be wary of those out to create mischief. Thoughtful write Cosmo!


  4. Bronwyn Bishop should be made Queen of Australia and then Bill Shorten could get another divorce and marry her youngest daughter !

  5. Fortunately I am a peasant. And glad to be one.

  6. Same here with me, EC....'

    I find it pleasant to be a peasant with a bit of class; maybe it's also pleasant being a pheasant, but perhaps not one under glass.

  7. Glad to see the last photo has moved off the head of your blog.

  8. I love this. There's an abundance of emaciated ideas floating around.

  9. Ah, the joys of free speech, being able to choose the least worst corrupt incompetents.

  10. The year is 1776. The news of the American revolution needs to be shared with the king.
    Courtier: Sire, the American colonists are revolting.
    George III: They certainly are!
    Variations on a theme.
    Peace and joy, JC

  11. Emaciated ideas indeed. Ironically, that's what seems to be the norm these days.

  12. Backed by
    degenerate affairs
    And emaciated ideas. politicians all seem to be this way.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
