The Palace of the People

The palace of the people
Is a curving glass affair
A vaulted crystal ceiling
With a spiral circuit stair
People walk in twos and threes
Above the parliament
People curving round the stair
Contemplate government
While outside random walkers walk
In lines and no array
Cursing all the empty talk
And wend their solitary way.

-A. David-
