If hidden heart hides all it holds
And does not so reveal
Its measures of diversity
How may we start to heal?
For sexual, sensual, mindful ones
With intellect, emotion
Know that others are created so.
All else is such strange notion.
Multi-faceted we all are
And so it’s always been.
We understand in many ways,
That’s how in life we glean
The differences and what’s the same,
The choices we all make,
Enlightened by our natures
For God’s and Mankind’s sake.
The only fear then is you’ll find
That leaders and some others,
Deny their soul, their unworthiness,
Flaunting self to others
As upright, straight, responsible
And caring without sin.
Gie’s a break, you’re human.
Perfection cannot win
If viewed by others as corrupt
When history reveals
Little things you’ve said and done
Or gigantic big conceals.
We did not ask for leader
With belt of horse-hair bound.
Just honesty, integrity, frailty.
Can one such one be found?
In this way, so you may relate
And gather quite a base,
If what we see and what we get
Hides not another face.
For power sought for selfish ends,
We may have just forgotten
Suggests another aimless trend.
Intrinsically, they’re rotten.
So if you have some cash to spare
And want to create a party,
A gathering of followers
To press your point so smartly
Better still than politics,
Just hire a huge, big hall,
Invite, get drunk, reveal the warts.
We’ll all have such a ball.
Then in the light of fulsome day
We may not all be tricked
By class of one, not political,
Just a self-motivated prick.
At least, we then will all have had
At your expense and call
One night of mediocre recompense
Before being screwed against a wall
Of blank distrust, of hardened glare,
Of blind, blighted self-belief.
At least, well, I’m supposing,
That may give citizens some relief.
To know that if we put our cross
Next to your little name
And you become a big, fat loss,
We’ve only ourselves to blame.
