2013 GUESTBOOK 68: “My Crumbling Regime” (by Stuart Vance & Kevin Keelan)


There is no room for my ideas

in this tiny indoor space.

They creep out from under my doors

and through window sills

searching for identity.

My ides are a mess on the floor

I must clean up.

I disapprove of them- the way they move around, meander

and refuse to stay

within my limits.

No discipline! No respect for authority!

I begin to wonder,

what right have I

to try to corral them

like so many black sheep

into false coherency?

Who am I to play Hitler?

But when my regime crumbles

and I am forced to stand trial, I realize

(with the sadness of

an out-of-work God)

that my ideas chose me,

for better

or for worse.
