who shakes the rattle

the shallow end
of our grievance pool
stokes the backstroke,
floats the prattle-
of the bespoke fool
who shakes the rattle

at a brood stock
high and low
with the sticker shock
of blood flow-
damning a history,
drowning a heritage
and all being made fallow

who shakes the rattle

In the shallow end
of the gene pool
puddles a tribune
who riptides the notion
of a nation still capable,
and buoyant to navigate
a fresh stream of new blood-
through a reservoir of first
principle

who shakes the rattle
