how to limit corruption somewhat

why are the majority of congresspersons millionaires?
it is the little bribe
that breaks their identities
with the middle & lower
class

what is unfair
smells like
corruption

stop being a one-value
society of greed
where $ only matters––

a cultural recipe
for ill

stop metastasizing delusions
of false freedom

restrain public officials from
trading off their power,
prestige, contacts &
influence for fresh
careers of private manipulation
& gain

cut off the ego & its exalted
ambitions from the practice
of justice

to forgive/reward the guilt
of one
to create/distort/compound
the guilt of another

is neither fair nor impartial

let no one call this
just
