Dedicated to tyrants

As an opening post I felt I had to put some reference to Osama Bin Laden. I shall leave it open with this poem
Epitaph On A Tyrant

Perfection, of a kind, was what he was after,
And the poetry he invented was easy to understand;
He knew human folly like the back of his hand,
And was greatly interested in armies and fleets;
When he laughed, respectable senators burst with laughter,
And when he cried the little children died in the streets. 

W H Auden
