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.
