To be sure to keep it neat,

An attempt to deride.
Politics and business often agree
That morality can be a nuisance,

To compete one must delete
Methodically in ways not sweet.
Brutality can complete to satisfaction
What seems a necessary action.
But, to be concrete,
The motivations to be sly
Can be complimentary to the guy

Juggle H-bombs in swagger and grin
Before you do a few millions in.

That ferocity was the necessary bet
And delight that might makes right, but yet
The feat should be
