Power

(On the day one idiot narcissist leaves its power base to be replaced by another, the following cut-up continues to be apt):

Power is power,

but we are different
when we do not want it
for that.

It takes all our courage
to question this.

We are
unwillingly
the answer to our question

asking of it,
what motive?

Why the method
of one’s own motives
for power?

We are not in this power
relinquishing for our own sake
for others;

interested in the good of others.

There are other means
to an end where
this is this:

the good of others
is
the good of others;

being equal
is
being equal.

(cut-up: 1984 – George Orwell)
