‘Ideology’ by Robert King The Society September 22, 2015 Humor, News of Note, Poetry 1 Comment Ideology is a disease, Impervious to reason, An infection known to seize One in the election season. It has alas no known cure, This paralysis of the brain, No thought is allowed to stir If it runs against the grain. Left untreated it will spread Far and wide o’er the land, Undefeated until at last instead Another ideology raises its hand. For treatment, what can one do? Prescribe an enema every day So that when their crap they spew, The toilet sweeps it all away. Robert King is a retired lawyer and poet living in California. Feature Image: “Breakfast Table Political Argument” by Norman Rockwell.
