Already drawn to the trough,
to the prospect of being cared for,
choosing peace and domesticity,
we are startled with the interruption
of the news—as it happens—
and we become the audience
on stage, interviewed and counted
for ‘something’ by invisible pollsters
just to keep the plot alive:
a chicken in every pot,
better jobs and lower taxes
as wealth wicks up
the graft and scandals
we’ve become addicted to.
Truthfulness is rare these days and you do it well!

OOps, but you know who I am
Good food for thought
Ain’t that the truth!
