The General wears lifts, his power projects
he strides wherever he wants
The General plays it cool, straight, direct
he strives to be nonchalant
The General smirks at others, respect he commands
he’ll strike you down with information and wit
The General hides his insecurities, his worries, his fear
but his perfectionism won’t stop him a bit.
