My System of Government
I am the foolish accomplishment
of myself, an ego surrounded by
flesh and bone, singing the human
economy of living. I am the politician
of myself arguing with rogue political
parties that refuse to allow me to govern
in a democratic way. I assert to those
who will listenfriends and relatives
I am a practical man, ruled by shining
principals, even if I am the benevolent
dictator of my own heart. Am I impoverished
or enriched by my system of government?
The sun rises to shine over the landscape
of my human endeavor, my foolish accomplishments,
the warring congress of my appetites.
