The Politician

Old Glory

Some I will convince
Against their will
And others will know
From the first
I am right and
My cause is just

If my followers flag
I will quote from
The Bible or blame
The Muslims with
Their Sharia law

Forget we’ve all
Been warned that
The devil can quote
Scripture too

And remember it has
Always been this way
(Or at least since we
Changed the rules
Last week)

For your very own good
We are here to destroy
Your government and
All your ‘entitlements’ too
I promise you’ll be
Grateful in the end

So pay no attention
To the deep dark
Shadows that I cast
(And thank you for
Your generous donation
On your way out)

Changed

Oh, my nights …

I see it all so differently
Everything has changed
I am more aware
Than I have ever been
And the truth that
I have always known
Is truthful still
It is my understanding
That has been transmuted

I am more at home in
My own skin
More attuned to
My surroundings
I will never be alone again
Not that I ever really was

But now I hear the hum
Of the universe that underlies
The reality of my life
The music of the planets
Forms the backdrop
Of my days, and my nights,

Oh, my nights
Are filled with stars!
