self-preservation

The Powers That Be
say…
oh, something
or other
obtuse,
clueless
and loose
about
something
utterly vital
and, just as often,
absolutely nothing
– zip –
of any goodly use
or even of particular meaning
at all,
in order to make
something
or other
seem far more
important
than it actually is
or to shrink what really matters
into insignificance
with yet another
desperate bucket of blah, blah, blah
inconsistencies
to smother
veritable gaps
and confuse
in pursuit of
a wealth of false economies
and self-preservation –
but, collectively,
instinctively,
experientially,
we know this,
so, to bear it any longer
would be ridiculous.
