Say, do you hear voices in your mind?
There’s a constant conversation, planning, judging, reprising the day.
Funny how often they find fault.
You could have, should have might have . . well you know.
Then, there’s . . . why not, couldn’t hurt and might as well.
If you classify, you can make three categories
Things you fear, things you want and how to get ahead.
So the buzz goes, a tug of war between the voices.
Who’s in charge?
Probably no one as, each gets its turn on top,
Before being shoveled under.
At least that’s how mine go.
Then, I had a thought, a simple thought.
Why not elect a leader?
Someone whose in charge, you know fair and square.
Who will it be?
The one who chases the buck, a new deal, more hours?
The lover and family man and ? Provider.
The wild risk taker, double or nothing?
My suggestion, appoint the one who has the self confidence.
Elect him emperor, dictator!
And soon, iron rule is imposed, my way or the highway.
The Monkey voices scatter.
So, short, elect a ruler, a fair and just ruler
Allow each to have its turn but, the final decision is his (or her’s.)
After all it’s not so bad to have an orderly kingdom.
Even if, it’s only in your own mind.
