limp procession of democracy
in the center ring: education
the corner leaning towards bitter strife

ghastly voice yelling,
something about blocks and lining up
building great things with edgy hands
leaning towards striking

bitter woman with your bitter words and your bitter children
asking for handouts and quiet whilst standing gogglemouthed
and weighted hips bulging with blindsight and laze--

to the feeble minded, this may sound like air
moving languish through the halls

but to the narrowed eyed pressed against the wall
skirting harsh words and enemies in disguise
it is chalk dust
choking calm with text book lies and five minute increments
of how to line up on blocks and build great things made of silence

it is how change comes and stays too long
building ratty nests snuggled in the system of children
waiting for lunch and a clue
waiting for significance and relevance
