and leeches feel distinctly unwelcome, where true
humanitarians and altruists willingly offer services
without the rich compensation currently seen the
norm for doing practically nothing anyway

Governance is a pecuniary machine intent on taking
money from the hard-working so politicians can lead
a luxurious life on funds we contribute in the hope of
seeing good administration; it is so grossly outdated,
vested with rot as is clearly seen in Greece, Italy,
Russia, Africa, and Spain

Governments can and do keep people hostage and
those vociferously descrying the system disappear;
if everyone rejected bad authority change will come -
unless we prefer more colourful alternatives where
regimes actually strangle their own people for a few
to live lavishly in the majority's suffering

Until a new French revolution is underway, where
political ideologues are colourfully beheaded
and then red being the main theme …
