Democratie als Noemer


Als ik kijk, daar boven,
naar de vogels in de lucht
word ik blij,
maar
door de kogels diep in mij
voel ik me vogelvrij.
Ben ik weer tevreden,
kijk ik naar beneden;
Zie daar ginds
die mensen stelen,
om de hoek
de mensen helen.
Democratie is
toch voor velen,
zie ze paaien
en maar graaien,
hebben, hebben
niets meer delen
pakken wat men
pakken kan;
gaat dat niet
snel vervelen dan?

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
