Governance v Government

Proclivity in Governance: the epistles

(politics: the use of intrigue or strategy in obtaining a position of power or control.)

Politics is archaic;
a rootless parasite
on the processes
by which all systems
of life on our planet
evolve and are refined
in the slow heat of the
Universal feast.

Politics is mechanized system-
not to be feared nor sanctified
but known without acknowledgement-
by which systemic greed supplants
compassionate governance.

Not government,
for there is no debt in it;
governance is activity undertaken
en colonia, a living motility toward goodness,
within which individuals can respond ;
a dialectic by which mutation,
qualitative change,
is potentiated.

Government is absent identity,
fixed, speaking only politics,
impervious to reason,
seeking only sustenance stolen
by engulfing governance' spirit
in any of its aspects.

Planet Dwellers:
Live in compassion
so as to
create no gall
upon which
the political parasite feeds.

The beast has insinuated its
deathly arms
into every human archetype,
attempting to permeate the beliefs
through which good can be done
and greed is pushed
outside of the living memory.

Greed run amok seeks only
to destroy what exists for the other;
life shelters within the space
between greed and its
Politics is greed's language,
spoken by the jackals
that devour if only
to deprive.

Politics is cold, an undead language
from the crypt, emerging from between lips
that intersperse
this faux communication
within our words,
it sullies them.

Sans sanctity.
It is the snake devouring
its tail.
Not a living process but
deadly as war and robbery;
a system, a fully geared intention
toward possession of sensibilities,
precluding a human,
an altar, a lofty spire,
the sea,

Obama Nomination


Truly a man of the world
nominated for President
in America,
have you heard?

A man of reason,
a man for all seasons;
who better to bring
our nation's brass ring?

THIS is The Revolution !
At last it's begun.
We thought
it was imminent
when we were young.
It lay 50 years dormant.

Asleep for so long
in the hearts and minds
of the true, gifted and wise.
Obama has reached us,
opened our eyes.

"The Revolution will not be Televised"
Things change.
It's a wrap!
on so many years;
put an end
to government
by fears,
and smears.

Hillary's Legacy


She didn't want her legacy

to be that she blocked history;

her flawless oratory

suggested McCain's crematory

without being inflammatory.

Her fans, released from Purgatory,

rejoined their Party's inspiratory

to build our nation's recovery

from eight years of dictatory

rule by the "Republicanory


You know, the Chief "Executory,"
our "evisceratory"

(with the probable exception of the terms in quotes,
all the words in this rhyme are real;
sometimes the suffixes have been changed
to validate the innocent
and condemn the criminal)

Forgive Hillary


"When all is said and done,"

"at the end of the day,"

Hillary did it right

and she did it her way.

She gathered up

her considerable power,

used all she'd learned

before she was dropped

from her tower;

She saved her Party

in a fragile hour.

her supporters
to join her,
the Democratic party
with Obama.

McCain Lie #1001

With My Own Eyes

McCain was speaking
this very day
to Iraq survivors
at the VA.

He said when he
is president
veterans need not worry
about their benefits.

Benefits equal to Vets of WWII;
that sounds only fair.
But as that law wound its way
through the Legislature,
Sen. Mac Man fought it !
Mr. Big Deal P.O.W
didn't give a ***t.

Today as he spoke
to the recent vets gathered to hear,
he faked it as their champion
of helping them and their families
with college, housing and their debt:
doing his best to take the credit;
how does he even DARE?!!

BREAKING NEWS: McCain Can't Read!


I've had an urge
to discuss the surge;
Obama, Macs say,
is wrong in every way.

I vaguely remember
my shock at the info;
Surge troops sent by Loonies
simply paid off the Sunnis!

They were given guns
and $$$ by the tons;
to leave us out of their sights
and feel free to kill the Shiite.

The USA and Sunnis,
allies in the boonies;
the Surge is "a suck-sess,"
vast lies provide assuredness,
U.S. citizens won't ever guess.

Cain is Second


Though once he was the eye

of Adam's apple,

he envied the high opinion

others had of Abel.

Being of the blood-lust mind

of those who kill their own kind,

he could not restrain his violence,

and killed his brother

for expedience.

Understandably, he got out of town;

disfiguring marks

kept him safe and sound.

He found a wife when

there weren't any women!

A babe, and rich too,

he moved in with her

in the city of Brew.

Life wasn't always easy for Cain,

bad guys kept messing with him, with his game.

These men were also of the lust for blood,

like Cain's sons became,

just bad boys in the 'hood.

He lost his home, he lost his plane,

torture left more marks of Cain;

barred from high office by dirty tricks,

he's the Trickster now,

getting in his licks.

Try, try again, Mr. Hero,

you're a million years old!

The young are shining

with what's behind you;

if you persist, at the nation's cost,

it's the future you will doublecross.

A New McCain


Doing his "doody"
for the Boss;
Myth of the "Maverick?"
Declare a loss.

Scoffs at the importance
"if we all fill our tires;"
To his credit,
he agreed,
in a matter of hours.

Like "back in the day"
a"bipartisan" act,
but "shoot
from the hip"?
He can't;
that's a fact.
