Collected Poems

The Demagogue

The Demagogue

Talk to the drools.
Open your big mouth and spill out the words.
Your rhetoric is like the desert birds
that pick the brains and scour the bones of fools.

Say your big say.
Fill up your guts with words and let them spill.
Speak of the rights of man, the people's will—
then go to the Devil and collect your pay.
