Cause Without Doctrine

by Eric Chaet

There must be
men & women all over Earth
all ages, nationalities, & creeds
as frustrated as I am
whom fools & mediocrities rule
mis-allocating resources & attention
while most suffer
unnecessarily except for the mis-direction—
but how to gain the power
to transform the situation?—
again & again
cynics, psychopaths, & relatively well-funded egotists
take the lead
& attempts to change the situation
fizzle out
or descend into yet another war
(victory becomes the only cause, then)—
or replace one tyranny with another
claiming to represent this traditional ideology
or proclaiming that new one, & a new world
soon to be established
& eliminating whoever objects.
