Big Man in the High Towers

The Big Man sits in his tall towers

Stubby little fingers clenched tight

Businessman, master of all he surveys

And being Master is all that matters.

But why settle on owning a company

When the Big Man can own a country?


He wants to make America great

By discarding half of its people.

It’s just like cleaning his offices

Throws away what he finds distasteful

Condemning what he won’t understand.

Hurling hatred, safe within his fortress.


Giant orange child playing with his toys

That he only sees from high above

Clinging to his well-worn catbird seat.

But oh, he’s not afraid to speak his mind!

He tells it like it is, amen white brother!

But how can he know “what is”

Entrenched within his high towers?


But ignorance is no obstacle, it seems

Incompetence no issue in this circus

He’s angry, and so is everyone else.

Misery loves company, as does fury

But the blind rage of a pampered child

Has no place at the head of a nation.

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong. Being originally from Yorkshire myself the story resonates with me personally, but this is good writing. I look forward to com...

William Elliott Kern: Hey Lauren, enjoyed reading your book. Your story content and plot blend beautifully, with a few exceptions. think about describing your Characters, their surroundings, the location surroundings and such.

Radecki: This is one of the freshest stories I've read in a while. Author (Thetawave) has accomplished that rare feat of creating something original. If I had to label his writing style I would call it "baroque LSD".

Nida Bhounr: the novel was a very typical and clichéd plot boy meets girls , impregnates her and leaves her because of prior commitments then they meet up again. but nonetheless it was very nicely written. it was very typical but i liked it.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.
