The Error of Governance

Larger than life
Larger than God-Almighty itself
Tombstones of stagnation
Are the calling card of marble institutions
In a month of eternal Sundays

The in error governance of the world
Will not sustain its centre
And when it slides off
It is the role of the skeptic
Not the cynical
To bring the non sacred
What is human
Back together again
