Where Bullshit Lies Thick

The gap is closing they claim with
a counterfeit theatrical flair then
smear its essence in a weaselling
elucidation that says – oh, maybe,
perhaps, gross margins of error
might imply no major change!

So just another Poll we think –
the daily panegyric for a weak
and mindless clientele whose
wits have failed. Do we need
to know with such authority
what is likely to succeed or fail?

Polls sell prophecy, like it or nay,
and fantasies symptomatic of the
ways we are governed. Thus public
belief begets policy begets politics
where bullshit lies thick – but no thicker
than pollster questionnaires.
