A Kyrielle Sonnet

I would be ruled

by tfawcus

I would be ruled by those who smile
at all their dreams, and reconcile
themselves to life, a lapsed ideal,
and concentrate on what is real.

I fear when passion holds the rein,
sustained by gods who feed on pain.
Such gods, if true, should surely heal
and concentrate on what is real.

May all our leaders love this earth,
beguiled by what it's really worth.
May they feel wonder, not just zeal,
and concentrate on what is real.

I would be ruled by those who smile
and concentrate on what is real.
