Change You Can Bet On

The political system
in the land of the exceptional
and the home of the indispensable
is beyond reform

And any president
who tried to disturb the status quo
would be removed from office
by those who know how to do it

The only hope for change
in the light unto the nations
is through internal collapse
or political revolution

That’s not speaking
as a socialist or anarchist
or any other kind of ideologue
but as a horse player.
