Culture -/- Leadership

11:5
Culture

Folk-lore, sculpture, dialects, architecture:
Inspirational, generational artefacts

Drama, history, astronomy, philosophy:
Civilisation’s classical cornerstones

Tradition, music, dress, food:
Flavour human society

Respect other cultures deeply;
Customs, laws, beliefs

***

From humanity’s seething cauldron
National culture born

Impasse inspires cultural change
Change invites solutions

As society respects status
Citizens mix appropriately


11:6
Leadership

Chieftans possessing unswerving willpower
Loftier than mountains

Energetic rulers energize populations
Sloppiness promotes laziness

Increasingly accessible, congratulatorial successes
Secures superintendence obeyance

Greed, inelegance, hedonism, pride:
Undignified management faults

***

Superiors’ traits we despise
Never offer inferiors

Pretty princes useless pillars
Rotting wood’s comparative

Executive authority tiptoeing sycophantically
Stands upon quicksand
