We, the People
If government is not to help
the people it is, what's
a government for?
"We, the People"
is pretty clear. The language has not,
should not change.
Who cannot say "We the People"
have been cast adrift?
Who cannot recognize that corporations
have become more valuable
And still we beat
the drum for those who can't
and our realities of leadership
are schizophrenic: we are sick
with emptiness and think someone
else can make us well.
Our government is a servant --
those we elect have forgotten this:
only we can remind them of the
error of their ways and stop
our own insanity of false praise
for what we'd reprimand
our children for.
