Week 46; A Poem a Day


How to Run a Country, Part I

White-out the history
Before the textbooks are even printed
Spend all the people’s cash
Before any of it’s minted
Place blame for complex problems
On the silenced, easy targets
Extend your authority (in the name of liberty)
See how far it gets


Better than the proliferation of fences
For the intensification of divisions
Is our break-neck construction of roofs
With their constant obstruction of our views
That erodes our primal recognition of the sky
As the common shelter of human kind
