A prophecy

If I had a prophecy
It might relate to idiocy
Of the immense bureaucracy
Inherent in our democracy

If in fact my prophecy
Did not predict plutocracy
But instead a meritocracy
I would not be guilty of hypocrisy

What I lack in diplomacy
I also lack in delicacy
Because there’s bound to be a conspiracy
And an associated fallacy

But I suspect my prophecy
Is directed at the aristocracy
Whose creaking old gerontocracy
Lacks all useful advocacy

I sincerely hope my prophecy
Lacks the necessary efficacy
To become my ultimate legacy
For that would be sheer lunacy !
