Leveraged Power - by Bob Atkinson

Leveraged Power
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
"... when power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses ..."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

leverage held in one's hand
tells not of good intent
only flies beyond the grasp
of one simple mortal man

fleeing toward that false direction
of satisfaction superficially met
only tries to impede that word
which provides most heartfelt lessons

of how we live upon this earth
dream those dreams we plan
and stand up to our brothers
with or without a helping hand

power takes to multiplying
when agreed in substance good
more than don't will follow close
one with a benevolent attitude
