“Statistics Stylised”

“Statistics Stylised”

Statistics stylised and lionized, lordly compositions
Thoughts, ideas, concepts parboiled—
Spices added after cooking—nothing foiled
In the preparation, superstitions
In a pantheon of presidential glances
At the nightly tea leaves and signs of growth
At noon just beyond the summer solstice.  Strophe
And antistrophe aligned, astronomical finances
Support strength and free volition
But to the point, the mark, the target of both censure and attack;
Surely, hamartia strives with hybris in the legal track
From first impressions of a patriot to golden memories in remission,
Seconds in the gravitas of syllables of regret; Obama will succeed
Where Persephone failed: after all, he ate but two or three black seeds.
