On what is the individual and the state, i.e. does the King (the State) really have clothes on, or do we pretend to be oblivious to, or even wish to be deceived?

 

make way
make way
the pontifex is
on his way

we washed their walls
we washed the halls
we washed our balls
we washed shower stalls
no not a drop of our
gentlemen’s relish
left hanging

and then
we waited
as we ever do
and listened for
our out calls
but low and
behold
there were none
told
locked down
we were

no visits
no kisses

not even
from friend or
family
no foe
most certainly not
from the
almighty
pontifex maximus

a bizarre sight
i did behold
their nugatory parade
queer ado
of obsequious cronies
so grossly overcompensated
sycophantic bureaucrats
bottom feeders of
this schmutz they
call democracy
tis but putz of
pall idiocracy
they all but
makeweight technocrats
pretending
for to day
have compacted
then compress
their vacuously inflated
sciolistic hot air
ballooned
blow hard
subatomic egos
puffing and
fluffing
too huffing
into their unforgiving
too tight
sino sweat shop sewn
nylon monkey suits
asphyxiating
garrotter knotted
snug around
pulseless carotid
disdained meated
hooks
coddling
moreover
fondling
kissing and licking
spittle
styrofoamed cups
filled half empty
like themselves
with tap water
tepid
freeze dried instant
brownish brewed
momentary
stimulation

fuss and featherless
their asinine antics
are the anticlimax
of the apex
of my day
though I nonetheless
all the more
watch their
pompous procession
of clothesless kings
happy to be
having a good
laugh
at their
silly spiel
playing out
before my eyes
at their
worthless expense
