Wheee, the People!

     Instead of paying attention,
     you'll want and work for all the Things
     The Look, The Trappings Power brings
     like instantly yet MORE Power springs
     a well, a spell of Gain, warming,
     the spiral spinning uncoiling
     pinwheel ride painted up all Free
     but Not Really.
     Nailed in the middle
     squeeking and clattering unmerciful
     smoking and smelling bad
     all the safety valves bypassed or wired shut
     governors corrupted beyond any use whatever
     candidates with all the shiny shoes and blowjobs
     we turn the volume up again to hear the millionth version
     them saying, 'Be calm.  Everything is A.O.K.'
