Concerto for blunt instrument

An irregular heartbeat from d.o. to you. Not like a daily kos, more like a sometime sloth. Fast relief from the symptoms of blogarrhea and predicated on the understanding that the world is not a stage for our actions, rather it is a living organism upon which we depend for our existence.

Water World

no boundary, no borders
underneath, up above
this world thinks like water
its thoughts flow with gravity
thinking we need a flood
in the house and senate chambers
papers everywhere, wet
saturated electronics
washed-up politicians clinging
floating bad ideas, dead dogma
everywhere, choked cloakrooms
it was a swamp after all
filled by slaves with manure
whatever was lying about
it's still down there, it's
a fitting foundation for a nation
fouling the nest, give it a rest!
you may soon be all washed up
drowned in your own creation
you voted down lifeboats, life
preservers (preservers!)
floundering in a deficit reduction
growing weaker, exhausting options
sinking down thinking, thinking
like water
