    here is the poem titled “is democracy incompatible with human nature?” or just “democracy”

    It was within the circles of Athens
    That they remembered Atlantis
    Where Plato’s hand planted
    The expanse of the planet
    And upon a canvas of paper
    Realizing man’s handicap
    The Thinker and Vermin
    The Coil of the Serpent

    I have lost by one vote
    That overrode a thousand
    That One Voice was my own
    And I declared upon the mountain
    Under the fountains of blood
    Of it’s sons who were slain
    Before the illusion
    Was given a name
