on understanding a microscopic society

there is a microscopic world
that you and i have never seen,
inside a room just down the street,
behind the marketing machine

but though it may seem very small,
and full of swirl and vertigo,
we should respect it, as a world,
and let it find it’s fate, i know.

there is a large and frightening world
that you and i must daily see,
where every room and every street
is tumbling and barely free

of those who have to have control,
and cannot sleep unless they do —
who don’t respect the little worlds
of all outside their retinue.

but here’s the thing for those who rule:
do not control, inspire us —
or you will find us little folk
a pretty nasty
