Even the Etherious can be Properly Serious -a poem of transition and turning around
Large aged institutions seeking restitutions
aim assumptions, sort gumptions,
hoist improvements, educate movements,
seeking sufficient not less than omniscient,
a task recommended even if dead ended.
Regardless conditions in money or munitions
or assets distillated in actions sophisticated,
real value, let me tell you,
in all categories is not in these stories.
What is the deductive that spurs the productive?
Not crisis and debt. Not cyclic bet.
Not deficits added nor momentum padded.
Not bandits in cults. These stifle results.
Not stiffer a fine to undermine
reticent tissue. This clouds the issue.
No, I report the facts support
the reluctant miser is no fertilizer
when what we require is merit’s fire.
Lend some support, for here I purport
our greatest resource no matter our course−
impregnable forts, lucrative exports,
justice and reason without moral treason;
our purpose can’t shift to get over this rift.
When we’re interdependent, remaining resplendent,
then we rise up the mast, see our future and past
in all aggregation that fuels innovation.
Find what is requiring all the untiring
to push to the end for which we depend
−our freedom’s impunity in gentle community.
We must seek the vantage, peer over the rampage,
where wisdom’s enough no matter how rough,
where no explaining nor drama nor feigning
can cloud the growth that freedom’s oath
can bring to our nation. Now that’s socialization!
Isn’t it proven that what keeps us movin’
is not mere intellectual, nor dreams ineffectual,
however analytical or grandly political?
Freedom’s invincible based on the principal
there’s motion from ocean to ocean,
reaching and catching, comparing and matching,
in faith and in fearing, in sweat and engineering,
with diligent facts in solvent pacts…
if anyone will share it, let’s base it on merit.
This is the trend to level the bend,
to smooth the tension in cash flow and pension.
To recover our know how, get out and show how.
Committees promoting, elevating or demoting
the actuarial fences or media’s consensus,
chits and credit no matter who’s led it,
no matter the rank, no matter the bank,
no firm will ever earn nor thinkers ever learn
the power systemic in merit’s endemic,
always available, never assailable,
always effective in freedom’s directive.
Lets not be demented with what’s implemented.
Do well for doing good. We know that we should.
What’s holding us back? Worry about trouble and lack?
Imbalanced obligations? Value added among nations?
Risk and recapture? Is it greed? Is it rapture?
Is it noisy contention paralyzing our attention;
poor ideas selected by the blind self-elected?
We rule the fool. Use democracy’s tool!
Why stay delirious? Why shrink from serious?
Why waste the hours? Is it their choice not ours?
Drain their moat and get out & vote.
Leave the rhetorical fudge. Use results as our judge.
Look square in the face at the problems we chase.
Go back to what’s right in yourself day and night.
Life is fine when we’re each genuine.
You know if you’re giving good effort for living.
Use the responsible onus ’cause history’s shown us
society’s crescendo is not innuendo.
It’s living without suppression or doubt.
It’s not narcissism nor tricks & farcism.
It’s not voodoo that we do
nor a ritualized nod to a relegate god.
It’s not feeble acting nor caustic reacting.
To be fair,
those who care
fulfill genuine need
whether they follow or lead.
