Bombastic

#fowc #bombastic

A bit like a champion boxer

the businessman turned politician entered the ring

could you call it bravado ? possibly

could you call it unplanned ? definitately

pompously ill-mouthing his opponents at the despatch box while

ignoring his own advisers like nero fiddling

perhaps his own inflated self-esteem

would protect him from any fateful fall

those behind him are just waiting

for the balloon to burst – in spectacular fashion
