Societal Support - Poem by Patrick Czyz

The brightest stars act on screen
-And I view the spectacle.

The hottest singers play the tunes
-And I listen like their faithful.

The smartest scribes with their tomes
-And I leaf the volumes of their wit.

All the promising orators of politics
-And I respond yearly at the polls.

All the greats of history like my teacher said
-And I memorize them like a prayer.

All the crowds and their trends
-And I follow so as to append.

All the inventions the crafty peddle
-And I must test and trial every one.

The lucky few who arise high and mighty
-But not without the pillars holding them.
