Ideas Are Quite Content to Be a Patchwork
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Ideas are quite content to be a
Decently avoiding confrontation,
Enjoying well the wealth of stimulation,
Open to some opening in the bulwark.
Less willing to live lightly is the will,
On unity depending for its sway,
Given to harangue to get its way,
Yearning for power to shape, or break, or kill.
