I will write a poem, he said
(witness the distancing of the poet)
In which I will threaten and cajole
In such a persuasive manner that all
Who can be threatened or cajoled
Will be on my side.
Everybody who remains on the other side
Can be burnt to the ground in good conscience.
I will write a poem, he said,
And he continued to compose it, in his head.
