Charles my father has his Mary
Whereas Ed my friend has not his Mary
Then there is Ken who grasps for his Marie

*BD – Benevolent Dictator
There is no such thing as a benevolent dictator. A brief look at some of history's more famous tyrants will show that we were all were cast from the same mold and we are not benevolent.
We do not feel bound by rules of law; our actions must not be questioned, we do not negotiate, and we silence or eliminate those who oppose our policies. No form of government has been designed that can prevent the emergence of a tyrant. Dictators simply ignore or circumvent established laws by using cunning verbal platitudes. And too often, those with influence do not speak out against us until it is too late.
Thank you Lord for our Mary(ie)s.
