A political musing (with apologies to Emily Dickinson)
         Herald of the new age


Dispense With Truth

Dispense with truth, let fraud supplant;
success in circus lies.
A chaos act meant to distract,
true evil’s glib disguise.

Self-promotion dressed in flags
with policies unkind,
corrupts the body politic,
and all the base be blind.
