25 December 2013


not a day to rave about great 
achievements, in fact less an 
example of anything but that 
all-consuming indolence you 
now recognise a pure power; 
there’s no need to plan on it 
being the ultimate authority - 
you’ve a guarantee it rules 

no-one’s fooled by debate 
you make the decisions; its 
not as you claim germane to 
who’s in command - or fiats 
you won’t see as bargained 
traditions anyway
