Funeral for Democracy

Summer revolution, flowers in your
Air. Nike sweatshops. You are here:

be there. For Pericles’ printable
version of our democracy has died.

Come & join the funeral, bring a Lotus.
Or your own war dead. We have

shredded our constitution like ham.
I don’t take the peace movement

seriously. Then again as a National
Security Anal(yst) I might be wrong

& so I tell it like it used to be, with
a cortege of (Shit, the Fourth Reich’s

appearing at the following venues!
A page has been torn from our torso,

I swing high my own private drive.
Democracy?s dead. The hand brake’s ?
