Politically, the world is getting out of hand ...
Maybe it's the best way to sleep.
Although the political situation causes the opposite with me!

Just before the horror of World War II, a great poet wrote:

Politics

BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS

'In our time the destiny of man presents its meanings in political terms.'
      THOMAS MANN.

How can I, that girl standing there,
My attention fix
On Roman or on Russian
Or on Spanish politics,
Yet here's a travelled man that knows
What he talks about,
And there's a politician
That has both read and thought,
And maybe what they say is true
Of war and war's alarms,
But O that I were young again
And held her in my arms.
