Wakeful in the Petulant Potentate Nightmare

‘Good is better than evil because it’s nicer.’
That’s Al Capp’s Mammy Yokum from a time
good morals were seen as important and a goal.

The potentate resembles statesmen in the way
oil staining a beach is like a marble statue.
That is, not in any way at all.
I ponder this until the cows come home
and warders try to lock us behind doors.
