The Only Governmental Problem Poem by Vaughn Uriel Balane

The Only Governmental Problem



The Only Governmental Problem

Fri, Nov 20,2020 5: 43 PM

Ladies and gentlemen—
the problem, of course, unobviously,
is not the government itself.

If you multiply the mind of a common citizen by 5,7, or even 10 million,
you will be granted by the same emotional result,
regardless of how high your multiplier is.

You will immediately realize the answer yourself.

Why women weren't allowed to have careers,
Why people of color, were enslaved and displayed like animals—
Why only the highest of the hierarchy, are the only ones who are free.

You keep waiting and waiting for the perfect bell to ring,
When truly,
There was no bell to begin with.

Ladies and gentlemen—
look at the person beside you,
The problem isn't them,
and it isn't the system too.

The only problem is

you.
