I’ve a Little Communist
I’ve a Little Capitalist
       Battling Away inside of me
       I Believe the Capitalist is
       Reining Supreme
       (in a Defeatist type of Manner)
Whilst Being Bitch Slapped by the Muse
       I become aware the only Capitol I possess
       is the Ability to
       Rise Early &
       Stay up Late
Simultaneously, Randomly
       being told I have to be Mindful of Burnout
       So as the Flame Grows
       Weaker & Dim’s
       Poised Above it
I’m a Chocolate teapot

Neil J Pattinson (Western Australia)
