POLITIC POTENTATEBy : PROM VICHETCambodia/ Born 1956ARTIST CV
In the Democratic Kampuchea Regime, the right-wing powerful leaders were full of sky-high pride and set
themselves up as a politic potentates. They had so many bad and wily thoughts that the people thought
to create the name of Pol Pot. It appeared that they shortened it from the words POLITIC POTENTATE.
This dirty Khmer regime leader of Cambodia fell into a deep cave, which was a mountain of remains and
bloody tributaries leading to a sea of tears of all the Cambodian people.
They destroyed all infrastructures. There were no schools, national identities, culture, civilization,
religion, national tradition or customs, or any form of human emotions. Everything was full of doctrine,
foot-shuffling and marvelous cheating. It brought whole families of innocent people to kill. There were
no mercies. So all Cambodian people that survived the killing would not forget it.
