Whoa, Octavia

WHOA, Octavia!

Choose your leaders
with wisdom and forethought
To be led by a coward
is to be controlled
by all that coward feels
To be led by a fool
is to be led
by the opportunists
who control the fool
To be led by a thief
is to offer up
your most precious treasurers
to be stolen.
To be led by a liar
is to ask
to be told lies.
To be led by a tyrant
is to sell yourself
and those you love
into slavery..

Parable of the Talents. Octavia Butler
