Free Power - Poem by T (no first name) Wignesan

Free Power

free power
from its fetters
no power without the people
does power arise from any other source
than through the intent to control confine confiscate con conk conjure
computerize contort compel complicate concoct compress concuss conflict
confute condemn corrupt collar convict collectivize confound
concenter communalize collogue collude collonize commandeer
compartmentalize castrate calumniate crucify combinate cutdown curtail
curryfavour curb cully cuff cuckold crush crunch cross-question curveball
conform confuse criticize croak criminate crash cramp cram crackdown
covert counterplan
countermine counterfeit counterattack corrode convert contrive
contaminate constrain consecrate
connive conquer
power is a venomous snake
that sheds its skin
but not its venom
free power from its sting
free power from belief
from self-righteousness
from don't-not-look-at-me aloofness
from protective-damnedness
from ego-centred-ness
from megalomanic mindlessness
from aryo-apartheid-ness
from i'm-right-Jack exclusiveness
from self-opining holiness
from crass-headed-ness
from puritanic-mule-headedness
from airy-fairy grandiloquence
from haughty vengefulness
from scary authoritarianism
from the love of command
from sexually dominating abusiveness
from un-empathic tightfistedness
from back-scratching dastardliness
from building castles in the air-ness
from masonic clubbiness
from musty brotherhood-ness
from stealing and selling-ness
from never-enough greediness
from carion-loving usury
from thoughtless puttingdown-ness
from self-aggrandizing acquisitiveness
from the love of pomposity
from the seclusive-ness of honours
from fawning and flattery
from foggy non-visibility
from armoured parades
from press confounding conférences
from the Security Council colluding combine
from the general assembly showy-mugheadedness
from secret international pacts
from noseyparker-ness
from the international monetary fund
from partychairmanship-ness
from multi-national-ness
from Fort Knox Reserve Bank Swiss numbered accounts
from electioneering charitable-ness
from taking more than giving-ness
from absent inaccessibility
from highly guarded hifaluting-ness
from bypassing-ness
from sanctimonious peacefulness
from viagra sterility
from bleary-eyed self-satisfaction
from save this to spend that-ness
from take a crap on others-ness
from stratified doddering hierarchy
from smirking hypocrisy
from foie gras state dinners under candelabras in coattail-ness
from promising full-employment save the forests children and old-aged-ness
from so-called full medicare social security lower taxes & more paid leisure-ness
from housing for every no-one to no parking ticket-ness
from HIV indigestion
from AIDS constipation
from putting-on airs-ness
from marauding menacingness
from mièvrerie
from state dinner pent-up flatulence
from stentorian vociferousness
from stem-winding-ness
from log-rollingness
from flabby-bellied-ness
from stench-filled under-arm-ed-ness
from sweaty-palm-ness
from stink-breath-ness
from treacherous backslappingness
from stuffing-the-mouth-without-chewing-ness
from word slipperiness
from work inertia and lethargy
from gamboling sleepiness
from not-listening-ness
from turning-the-back-while-talking-ness
from averting-the-eyes-ness
from dirty-trick-ness
from sick secret-service-ness
from bloody tricky smiling-ness
from thinking-one-and-saying-another-ness
from forked-tongue-ness
from spitting-in-the-face-when-talking-ness
from smiling-and-looking-daggers-ness
from gourmandise
from niaiseries
from wishy
