This little ditty comes from my first blog, which was called “Classical Sympathies.” It is called “the process has a point of view.” When I started Sympathies, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I still don’t.
the process has a point of view the process has a plan it consecrates opinion of the group or of the man
the process can be tampered with but one must take great pains to regard the ghouls that process fronts for ghouls weighted down with chains
each time we wantonly with process toy one chain process doth loose if the ghouls become untethered we have ourselves cooked goose
blood rites, human sacrifice, motions carried parliamentary procedures of every kind serve well to prettify men’s base designs but their rigidity may insult the mind
so by all means make your end run around the process, subvert the stated order, bring fresh thinking but beware the ghouls of process which will claim their pound of flesh
or better yet submit to process and to “the rules” establish your credentials and sanctify intent until you see that form is but an empty suit and process, when respected, can be bent
