Lord of a dead world.
Won’t somebody come join me?
Alone on my throne.

He’s not our hero
He’s a silent guardian
A tax collector


Pork barrel earmarks
Head honcho’s hat in the ring

My ambitious plans
Scorned by ungrateful voters.
They want low taxes


Oh, won’t you come vote?
I promise I won’t float
you all down the drain.

Incumbent / Nascent
Heavy Is The Head; / Am I Up To Task?
How Tired I Am. They Ask, / The People Call Me To Lead,
‘Wear The Crown Again!’ / ‘You Can End His Reign!’

I’ve been having some fun with a certain planet’s election, inspiring mine :slight_smile:

A core world; fertile
Who’s Nirces? Might I win…? Nope
At least I’m second!


I can promise… :sweat_smile:

Modern haiku theory says that English haiku doesn’t have to strictly stick to the 5-7-5 syllable structure. Shorter is better.

Eat production fees
Will you skim or subsidize?
Keep workers happy

More spreadsheets than most
More bases and ships to boast
Tax taker and host
