The Swirl Of Subsidy

The wind swirl,
The harmattan
Harass the hapless masses.
Tossed into the swirl of subsidy
Shiver and wail.

The shiver,
The wail cease.
Storm the squares,
The storm strengthens.

The guardian of sovereignty
With gruff grunt unleash
The terriers of terror,
The storm strengthens.

The hounds
Storm the squares
To straddle the storm,
The storm strengthens.

The storm
Strengthens to whirlwind.
No more growls from guard dogs,
No more guffaws
From the inner sanctum.
