Parliament Of Fools
© Allan Markin

Sunday afternoon
       lemon gin
grassy hill, two thinkers
       solving all the problems
of the world
       in their parliament of fools

Pass the bottle
source of wisdom
inspiration flows hot
so many issues to discuss
ideas float like petals
onto the dry grass

With every drink
our senses sharpen
witty insights floating free
we are philosophers
two wise men
40% by volume
in our parliament of fools
in our parliament of fools
