Politics for a Simple Mind by Linda Stevenson

Politics for a Simple Mind

I try to understand
stuffing worn in
formation inside
worn skull
even at this late episode

is a fourth reich immanent
or in full flower
second coming squared

I would have grasped math
if taught wisely
was lectured
by fathers of the old church
while war flourished
while still a toddling new thing
decade and aftermath

stuck in commitment
I still own no sure promise
re where the numbers are
