A political poem - a prose poem.
|The conundrum of posturing
Touts an inviting edge;
This adult passion for fortitude
Occurs in a lifetime.
Restrictively gross morals
And judgment are passed -
Confirmation of a striking need
For kind and peaceful ineptitude.
The righteous values
Of freedom and knowing
Shall foment and rival
These incipient, gaping holes -
The risen shall depose
All meaningful subject matters.
A life of legal and purposeful measures
Must no longer be slivered
And the courageous belief
In our great land
Shall strive for mature
And poised authority
By its citizenry,
Freakishly mired in
A society invested in inhumane travesty
Must endure the least extreme measures.
The presentation of respectful avenues
Occupying no place
In these gapingly infested classrooms
From this prestigious point forward.
