Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
He thinks he da man

He Da King

by Mike Stevens

He rose to the heights, at least in his mind
King of nothing, a legacy of bullshit lies,

Delusional reasoning never let him rest,
in his clogged mind, thinks he's the best

He ruled with a paranoid and iron hand
He ruled a fantasy castle built upon sand

His was a temper of an angry third-grade boy,
and he treated government as his personal toy,

here to enrich him, and expected his subjects to be loyal
His self-serving decrees caused chaos but royal

And America was his oyster to feed his gluttonous ways
He worshiped strongmen and the 'crime pays' phrase

Incapable of empathy, he had a cult following none-the-less,
his heavy-handed decisions caused confusion and mess

Soon the people grew weary of his chaos and servitude,
and voted him out, along with his mobster-like rude

He still voices his unhappy through the magic scroll,
and strives to regain his rightful place and complete control
