ode to authority

most everyone

 

 

has the authority

 

 

 

to do

 

 

whatever they can get away with

 

 

there’s a whole lot of people

 

getting away with a whole lot of shit

 

and a few people

 

getting away with

 

a whole lot more shit

 

 

 

and a couple people

 

 

 

 

 

getting away with

 

 

ten thousand

 

 

 

more times shit than that

 

 

like our

President

and Vice President

 

 

of the World

Gas House Corporation

 

 

one of them always

gets to keep their finger

on the thermostat

 

 

they both must be cold blooded

 

 

 

cuz they keep it hot

 

 

 

 

 

 

all the time

 

 

 

 

 

i

think

 

 

when they each wake up

 

in the morning

 

 

 

 

 

and look

 

 

 

 

 

in the mirror

 

 

 

 

they see authority

 

 

 

 

written in the lines

in their foreheads

 

 

 

 

by their founding fathers

brothers

cousins

 

 

the authority to contradict

 

 

themselves

 

 

 

the authority to arrest anyone

 

 

 

 

 

who is contradictory

 

 

 

i’d like to know

how they get away with it

 

 

 

seems to me

 

 

authority

 

 

 

 

always winds up

 

 

 

 

being decided

 

 

 

by the most powerful punch

 

 

 

 

no matter what anyone says
