Ancient Harangue


Where would we be without politics?
Probably not any less confused as to
what is actually being debated – the
fanfare will be the same, & no doubt
the rhetoric will follow precedent set
by well rendered years of hot air – a
forum sort of warranty prescribed in
annals of arcane & ancient harangue

But there will be less crapulous airs
and graces expressed as Party View
per se, & direct insults taken for real
and bloody duels effected – hopefully
reducing erstwhile waste before any
worthy survivors are actually paid
