Remove the influence of money;
Government runs smooth as honey
Replacing the lobbyists
With lawmaking hobbyists
Making things go much more sunny

GOVERNMENT

Anxious Laugh

New Camden Times

Pure power expressed

Gathers attention when it

Affects witnesses

Cynic

Enticing opinions
Of those whose dominions
Spur thoughtful reactions
Might lead to infractions
Arising within y'uns 

Perform a bricolage
Of actions to dislodge
Seized up thinking
From realities a-shrinking
Thus calamities to dodge

Horizontal thinking
Lying down thus shrinking
From physical existence
Might just fortify resistance
To deportment that is stinking


Train your ear to tell
Good tunes from bad; well
Now it isn't hard
If you're on your guard
Against music that fails to impel

Henry Francisco
