Poem: Full Disclosure

Charles W. Harris


Full Disclosure,
a good night's sleep
under the spell
of transparency.
An Open Sky,
the rest of trust
beneath the wealth
of stars.

Presidential priviliege,
burning midnight oil
covering a web
of secrecy -
Behind the scenes
executive braintrusts
with covert powers
of deception.

Replace my Haven
with slogans of terror
which they've concocted
in error
And in their dream
of ruling the world,
their plans've created
a Nightmare.
