The country had a new leader at last.
Decades after being ruled by a dynasty, who had been inheriting the throne on the basis of their bloodline.
The new leader was chosen by the people, and they celebrated their choice with aplomb. They spoke of the things he had done, and prophesied the changes he would bring.
That he had walked ahead leaving behind footprints soaked in a trail of blood of innocents was overlooked, as was the fact that Religion was the fuel that ran the party he belonged to.
The very same people derided the choice of a leader of the most powerful nation in the world.
‘He shouldn’t be voted into power!’, they echoed.
Even as they continued celebrating the one they chose to rule them, who had many of the same qualities as the one they spoke against.
What does this say about the choices we make? Of us?
Do we choose people who reflect our desires? Do we disguise our inner devil to put up a holier-than-though attitude? Does our inner core ever change?
Or, is it true when they say, ‘Even if a Wolf dons Sheep’s clothing, it still remains a Wolf’.
