Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

The Power of the Person


The power of the person
Hercules and Amazon in fact
Personality magnetic
Cute, sometimes biting in charm
Express, beam, lock
Princes and princesses of the World
Lords and ladies of the Earthy Realm
From icy wastes to furnace heat of African planes
Up thousands, nay hundreds and thousands of feet
And fathoms and fathoms into the dark, dark deep
Infinity of knowledge seeks
To with it do what?
Make infernal machines, simulacrums of nature
Artifices of life as the Midas touch turns all to gold and brass
Useless, of no value to the honest
But, still, for all that
Seeks to improve life upon the planet
Bu only for themselves
All else is hell prisoner in thrall
And in chains.
