Napoleon

Strength and courage, he has to show;

All things great, he thinks he must own.

Short, yes; but shortsighted, he’s not;

He’ll conquer the world wearing a top hat.

 

The biggest voice; it must be heard,

One king rules this land and law is his word.

The new kid on the block learned the hard way;

Napoleon is top dog and only he has his day.

 

Something to prove for all of the taunts;

Vowing to prove naysayers wrong.

Big job, big car; a wife the envy of all;

Through accomplishments he’ll finally be tall.
