Mutations Of Self Interest



Besides dreary politics
the functioning of law
conspires to weary me
although I’m neither pro
nor con its song and dance
I see philanthropic
mutations of self-interest
in the claim: “Vote for
ME and I’ll give you
what YOU want!”
I know that what it
really stands for is a
statement of intent:
‘Vote for ME and I’ll
give you what I want!’
On the other hand law
is less an Institution than
an Ass who sits absorbed
in rictus on an egg-like
ego contemplating self
Regrettably the hatch is
neither planned nor heritably
compatible but nonetheless
protected it will be by full
force of an Ass!
