The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - A Society of Sheep

A Society of Sheep

by

James Bredin


A society of sheep will eventually get leaders who are lions
No recall or binding referendums - just compliance,
Absent ideology but party discipline and pumped up fear,
UN-NATO obligations that are never quite open or clear.

Transparency in government is what politicians abhor,
Because ethics and accountability might show on the floor,
And the people might realize what this is all about,
That this parliamentary side show runs without much clout.

Appointees and bureaucrats do exactly what they are told,
No need for honest debate, referendums or recall in this mould,
Court system run by elitists behind a publication bans,
Apathetic public is not allowed to know the plans.
