King of the Hill

 

Techno-babble
blurs into political jargon,
numbing the senses
with a coalition
of confusion
and expectations
replaced with
extra hyperbole
and superlatives
that swamp
the mind,
till rationale
and understanding
are superseded
by a simple question
still unanswered:
was the election
an abdication
by the people
for the people
and who won
or lost
and why do we still
not quite fathom
who is Prince Regent
and who
King of the Hill?
