What we show to our children, they’re poised to reject
On the basis that they do not want their minds blown.
We’ve a binary system of government still
That reflects not all backgrounds nor popular will.
Current live through the nation is to the world known.
It erupts into madness. What can we expect?
We are AC’s and DC’s, the reds and the blues.
Our reps pair off like chromosomes as they perform
Their tough work notwithstanding the issues involved
That lay gathering dust and are not to be solved.
To relax in convulsion has become the norm.
In the ways we are jolted, we may change our views.
We should maintain the circuitry. Current through us
Can be managed and measured as cycles repeat.
When we’re shocked to our senses, will there be a pause
In our faulty behavior? Will we change our laws?
Our components, conventional, are then discrete.
Things can be quite as simple as minus and plus.
