fool

can we take a muddled moment
face the future in a daze
we are trapped in our confusion
caught in the gorgon’s gaze
many days and nights bewildered
by the silence in our heads
there are days when we must wonder
is it worth leaving our beds
shake your fist and rage unnoticed
call down fire on those who rule
never mind that their replacements
would still treat you like a fool
anything may serve a purpose
anyone may serve a cause
but where will we find one worth serving
might as well wish for Santa Claus

    That’s been discussed by many deep meaning think tanks, even they don’t know, however it sounds like an anti-political rant to me.
    I’ve often said more than once, “Vote them ALL out & install a whole NEW crew who has 4 years to get it right or bye-bye to them too”.

    • As Lord Acton wrote “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”. And as someone else whose name escapes said “anyone who seeks power is not fit to wield it”.
      Apart from that I’m fine with politicians 😀

        Yeah me too, if they just didn’t get hung up on being a politician for 20 or 30 years it would be nice

        • On balance I think I would rather my politician be a professional than a well meaning amateur, but that comes down more to approach and attitude than time in office. 😀

    Applolsaus! The biggest problem with all change is finding a direction that does not bring you back full circle to where you came from. There are times that is does seem like we are wishing for someone/something that doesn’t exist..much as we wish it did..

    • The secret is, I think, not to seek the best of all possible worlds, because you are going to fail, miserably, but just the best you can manage. And anyone who claims to have all the answers is a liar or a fool. And if you see Santa give him my best wishes 😀
