out of this whirlwind of indecision
I plan to institute order.
I plan to march through the chaos
and plant my flag triumphantly.
to struggle into, topple over, move aside
with cries of victory and then peaceful songs
fistful of flowers to be replanted.
smiles and wisps of laughter, a dance of joy
and all from the pushing, the serious intent
the inspired labour – the sweat, the explosions of energy
the clearing of all hurdles / obstacles / enemies
the trudging over bodies
to establish an order and find a peace of mind.
I’ll be filling the hallowed holes reserved for faith
with might, discipline and
a powerful display of intellect, of will, of power
I will triumph with cannons, flags and trumpets blaring
bells of joy and freedom and victory
and then rest, a peaceful rest.
so, out of this whirlwind of indecision
I envision I will institute order.
