Caress of the throne


(BY: CLEM M. BASCAR) Politics is a tournament of power
ultimate in intensity and excitement;
yes, there are rules but they don’t mean anything
those who follow to the letter end up
countting ballots without their names

it’s played like sungka
the more stones  in the hole, the better is the
chance of winning; those whose holes run
out of pebbles
find themselves catching grasshoppers
the morning after

its scent toxicates the whole being
heart, mind, body, and soul
everyone succumbs to the addictive
caress of the throne
