Francis Anthony Govia
Look, there they are!
Across the Universe find
Paper Mache men and women
Devoid of all morality.
See them twist and turn in the wind.
Wet your finger with your tongue
And wag it in the air.
If you care
Follow that compass.
Come! Admire those who treat their fellowmen
Team with common thugs who rule by guile;
Those who speak of peace
But war is in their hearts.
Look! See them keel over
Observe hands that are calloused from squeezing people.
Listen! Peruse the garbage
That is disseminated to our children.
Come! Let our freedom become slave.
Throng! Let those who are fascinated squeeze between the crowds.
Scream! Let the masses surge beyond the ropes to touch
For here come Royalty.
