Power: what are you?

You went to bed and slept soundly,
Not every one went to bed
And slept soundly;
Look at what happened in Turkey;
265 dead as you slept soundly;
A city rugged by power struggle;
The fruit of poor planning easily seen;
As attempt to seize power woefully failed;
Winners took to the streets to celebrate;
Losers gnashed their teeth and took flight;
Those on whom fortune refused to smile
Arrested to pay ‘Heavy price for their treason.’
What is power that so fiercely we fight for?
Look at the number that was killed!
And many more still to be killed.
What are you?
