Hypothetical Healthy Party-Less Government: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Imagine a government with no parties

with public officials paid to do all works

say, scholars, experts, and alike smarties,

instead of all these familiar careerist jerks.

Think of them as closely supervised by a high court

with a well defined constitution and a moral code

not in any need for amateurish public support

unlike present politics all crazy and flawed.

If a doctor doesn't get hired by a panel of cooks

lay public has no trained eye for a "leading type"

that's why we always end up with bunch of crooks

just regularly brainwashed by some popularity hype.

Such high court should hire, as well as fire

all policies being outlined in advance

with no candidate trying to inspire

a public love at first glance.

By a referendum agreed-upon constitution

that would keep fairness as its highest goal

court would represent the highest institution

protecting interests of the nation as a whole.

Politicians would not be puppets of the wealthy

with the lobbyists governing behind the throne

but with government clean-nosed and healthy

with laws working for all as chiseled in stone.
