Western society is bogged down by democracy,
Because an ignorant, malevolent citizen
Is afforded the same vote,
As one who is learned and benevolent.
The result of democracy
Is, therefore, determined -
Not by justice -
But by statistics.
Only when strong, kind, intelligent people
Out number greedy, ignorant, cruel ones,
Can we hope for a Utopian society.
It is said that Utopia cannot be -
Utopia  means "no place":
From Greek ou  not + topos  a place.
But I believe in Camelot.
I am building my part of it, 
One essay at a time,
With truth in every line.
Phyllis Carter
