Poetry: Demo(n)Crazy

Democratically undemocratic
Or undemocratically democratic?
That’s the question!
Before elections, power is sought from below
After elections, power comes from above
- That’s the way it is in a demo(n)crazy -
How change of power through elections
Makes the demons of power become crazy
In a demo(n)crazy!
