The poem ends with the bard urging us to demand participatory democracy from our increasingly authoritarian governments, and begins with the end of the only true golden age our world has seen - the time before civilization's scourges began to afflict humanity with seemingly endless suffering.

I am not a poet! That is what I keep telling myself anyway! A poet is someone that takes the literary form very seriously and it would appear that I tend to be quite the opposite. I just enjoy playing around with words to create something enjoyable to read, something to make people laugh, something to make you think or just say “what was that?”. Who cares as long as it provokes a reaction?
