Elections

Elections

The recurring act of sacrificing democracy
Ritual filled demagogy
Clash of the unholy Heirophants
Power occulted by an all seeing unknown

Ballots formulated for confusion
Machines tabulating results by computer code and not will
The fix is in but we not the fix
Change camouflaged by the shifting polls

Election ashes resurrecting around Wednesday’s corpse
The mark of the Lamb casting a shadow on that of the Beast’s
One devotee surreptitiously embraces surrender
At election’s end the owl turns towards the night of day.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
