..from Provenances And Paroles… ‘The Body Of Politics, The Spirit Of Truth’


 

The body of politics, the spirit of truth
pursued
the corpse of philosophy
in your youth dismissed for sooth
sayers and unheralded news now

Refreshed, all renewed
by the old scarecrow of mortality
a familiar friend and enemy not soon
forgotten by hard partying –
the incipient jester of Alzheimer

Or some other goof
choking out dreams or waste
what remains uncontained no matter
what they or I or you say, or
may wish to do so to any mad hatter, anyway
