Democracy Poem by Bryan Taplits

Democracy

Rating: 5.0


What a store and a delight-
A stratagem which I believe,
A fevered fount
(Where votes all count) -
Yes! This democracy.

But notice one flaw I see-
And seems much more than little,
Where insurrections occur-
(by demented curs)
When done by one,
Is criminal.

But what if one hundred
Mob up to do the deed,
Yes, they are swine-
and it's still a crime-
But then we call it:…
Democracy!

Thanks. I wrote this a long time ago-but I liked it (mainly because of it's ironical theme) . Anyway, as I did your other comments, I appreciate your positive (and hopefully accurate) feedback.
