The two parties are not the People

fear
induced
by our disempowerment,
by their self-made suborned threats,
makes us forget what we are:
a democracy.
Let us get up off our knees!
No supplicants we
the People.  Stand, citizens!
Cast off dread and despair!  Come!
Once more unto the breach, dear friends!
