PSALM TO POLITICIANS

“Again a flood of hackneyed words

Comes pouring from the noisy throats

Of many office-seeking birds

Who promise, in exchange for votes,

To dedicate their massive brains

(And strictly gratis, udnerstand!)

To ridding us of social pains

And making this the Promised Land!”

(From Bulldogs and Morning Glories by John Edward Allen, 1945)

John Lentell

December 9th, 1968
