Failed Magicians – Written September 2020 (Aged 45)

Failed Magicians

you pick these con men
and failed magicians
something in your education
leads you to believe –
that they should –
occupy the top positions
that kind of, ‘madness’
leads to these zealots –
on such destructive missions
how can you believe
these people should be –
in powerful positions
why do you believe so –
in these failed magicians

James Garratt – September 2020
