Impossibility is the claim

Impossibility is the claim
of every politician and fool
that enters the government
and tries to rule

We are stuck with the chimney
and logs but no fire
the draft from the open door
and no returns from those we hire

One day the silver ship will sink
and the crew will claim that they
were working at the rowing
when they were all astray

I guess the problems might be
the unrealistic dream
of democracy as service
rather than a private profiteering scheme
