The Stable


Elections
are the horse race
all show
pure entertainment
political consumerism
they keep us
diverted
our energies
occupied

We quit
watching the
magic hands
of the
ruling oligarchies
as they make war
and steal us blind

Mr. Big
has a deep bench
inside the stable
with eager
men and women
of many colors
ambitious
chomping
at the bit
ready
for the big race

Mr. Big
seeds all
government
business
public organizations
and political parties
with his
jockeys

It’s like
stocking
a lake
with trout
before fishing season
begins

The leaders
we are allowed 
to pick from
are
stable stock
all have their
orders
ready at the sound
of the gun
to do the work
of Mr. Big
 
The jockeys
ride us
like sheep herders
moving their flocks
to predetermined
places
where the
wolf
lies in
wait
for supper
