The Great Democracy

An object without an object,
A thing with meaning not a thing.
Close to God, here—see what we mean?

Imagine a society
In which every adult body
With the capacity to vote

Actually voted and the votes,
Like each unit of currency,
Carried exactly equal weight.

Imagine all accepted this,
Society as a giant,
Parallel processor system

With a yes/no binary code.
Would it be worse than what you know?
Would it be better? You can’t know.

It’s not a thing beyond language.
It’s like God, remember? Meaning,
If you say so, it can’t be shown.
