WISDOM OF SOLOMON

Those who sow the wind
reap the whirlwind.

The politicians,
seeing nothing better to do,
sow the wind.

Encourage the people
to be dissatisfied
(so that they can promise to satisfy them).

Encourage the people to envy the rich;
(promise a fairer redistribution).

Tell the people:
they have a right to be angry,
they have a right to justice,
they have a right to free sex changes.

The people are like blotting paper.
Soak it up eagerly.

Dissatisfaction, envy, anger,
demands for justice (and sex changes)
become a whirlwind,
which hunts down
the politicians.
