The Urgency of Fallacy

The Urgency of Fallacy

A Poem by GeraldFIngBurke
"

A few thoughts on the current state of affairs.

"
Have I missed the salient point,
A laugh, a lie, a smile?
Do in process we anoint,
The cunning and the infantile?
To break ourselves upon the shore
A sacred, albeit boring score
Deny ourselves the sovereignty
To govern progress sovereignly
Reigning in and raining on
The arms of fortune thrust upon
These words in name
We scream again
“We’ve conquered thee!”
“Why can’t you see,”
“The urgency of fallacy?”

It does convey the frustration of politics in "democratic" countries the world over G - except maybe Greece at the moment where things are getting interesting.
The sovereignty/sovereignly lines are class !
