Why Be A Democrat?
Willfulness is part of what it takes;
Haughtiness makes a component too.
Yearning for a better life’s heartaches
Beset by Self-Deception’s shuttered view
Earns suicidal urges ‘mongst the Rich,
And fosters dreams of Vengeance in the Poor.
Deny this truth? You’re apt to lose your niche
Ending up locked outside your own door.
Money too diffused loses its power.
Our hope to see Equality for All
Creates a fractious mental climate sour
Resulting in Revolt bound to appall.
A misperception of our truest needs
Traps us where upon ourselves we feed.
