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.'
