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.
One thought on “Copping Out 26”
Funny dry sad kindly gentle wise humble sharing asking questions, not pedantic, loving. Look forward to a book and I enjoy the photos addition. You are opening your cloak for the world staying still and travelling.
