Vox Populi~by Paul Lenzi


 

 

Vox Populi

bird

“Bird’s Hell” by Max Beckmann

democracy dwells in your decibels
live your citizenship loudly
give your unrestrained voice
to indictments of tyranny
ring your bell-clapper tongue
in harangue of injustice
yell your dissatisfaction
into fourth estate ears
or succumb to a silent
entombment by quiet collapse

 

 

From my book City of Pawns
