Deep Analysis and World Affairs (Draft 1)

Thank you for indulging me again. I couldn’t help but comment a little.

I know politics is confusing,
but I love you so much for

wanting to speak with me
about anything at all, knowing
you always pick up, and
learn an aspect of me, even when
I ramble on about all kinds of silly things.

I think even when I chatter at random
there’s a few things
I meant for you
in the background

A few things you’d enjoy just because
it seems like a conversation of two
is somehow more grand than the world,
not that I don’t wish the world well. Let them eat cake.

But I have
a much better dessert for you.

Sign our treaty in the pudding.
