Poetry with a Conservative Slant

 

Artwork by practitioners of a Conservative viewpoint can be hard to come by.  If you’re a Conservative you’re accustomed to this.  If you’re not, you might be afraid of reaching down into the rabbit ‘hole’.

Well, fear not.  Here are a few sample snippets of some poems:

 

Big Government

 

 Sometimes I lie in bed at night

trying to imagine how big the government is

until I pass out.

 

And summer times I some times,

lie on the grass

and name each constellation

as a separate bureau.

 

That constellation there.

The big one.

That’s the Department of Health, Education and Welfare

with a total budget this fiscal year 2015

of one trillion twenty billion dollars.

 

Anarchist at the Political Fair

 

If we are our own worst enemy,

as we are so often,

what folly to cast aspersions!

I am not here to rile you up;

I am here to calm you down…

Continue to disagree as you will and as you must.

I am not here to change your minds – but to disperse them!

Altogether we constitute a pox!  There’s the truth of it.

Too much power is granted to too few.
