When I tell this story to the kids they laugh:
It’s too stupid to be true. I look stupid
for telling it. I’ll tell you what a real
democracy would be: when those governing
are poorer than those being governed.
Historians, examples please! Why so quiet?
OK, here’s another corker: rich people announcing
they are rich enough! It’s the way I tell ’em.
Generously provisioned politicians
flogging a rapidly dying horse? Certainly
they’re not dismounting. I couldn’t stop
myself said the scorpion being ferried
across the river by the frog it just stung.
We’ll all be carbon by 2050.
