Cometh the hour, cometh the greedy fool.
Though a classicist from Balliol,
he eschewed role models like Pericles and
Spartacus, preferring the Lion King.
Bank-rolled by the money of oligarchs,
he was their unkempt, useful idiot,
an adipose, amoral narcissist,
in that land of public malfeasance,
of conspicuous inequality,
corporate manipulation, media
compliance, self-righteous kleptocracy,
Ever the opportunist and the dicer,
to distract from drunken scandals that mocked
the unnecessary deaths of tens
of thousands of his fellow citizens
he employed foreign flags and foreign corpses.
