peaceful, they’re still wishing
their enemies dead.
Rejoicing at their misfortunes.
Cheering their illnesses,
their damages. Oh,
I love the Left…how easily
they become what they claim to despise.
On the Right, at least, they claim
no disguises. No sense of irony
when they say
they are afraid and in peril;
they adore the stance of victim
even when a glance around reveals
how far from the bottom they really are.
I love them too: so openly comfortable
to the idea that their own peace of mind
is founded in the unease of others.
Everyone is dangerous right now.
We all believe we’re going to die
if the others come to power,
forgetting the lesson, the Great Teaching:
someone is going to lose
no matter who’s in power.
Power depends on someone losing.
If you want power, you are committing
to someone else not having it.
Well, is all that power itself necessary?
Ask that, and see how quickly you are answered.
