Circling Round Self-Interest
I watch the news.
Wants to go its way and wants
To stay in EU.
It’s an issue.
Everyone has something that they want to clinch
And will not give an inch or forfeit.
How to beat what eats the issue
Makes you blind and binds you.
To defeat self-interest is the issue.
Take the long-gone League of Nations,
Its creation to end war - post World War One -
Did some good, but still it failed.
World War II was on its tail.
Came the UN - still extant.
Now the EU, is it canting?
Things start out with good intentions.
Nature’s thing is to evolve:
Grow, contract, break down, dissolve,
Replaced by new forms and conditions;
The self-interest’s hidden skeleton.
Political by unintention,
Few convictions, few opinions,
I see pure idea and spirit,
Reason true and what's behind it,
What is missing and what is.
In this case what is, is always
Circling 'round, you guessed,
