The Body Politic

Socialism as a State of Mind

Society is a Social Body, but

The Body is also a Society of Cells,

And the Soul a Society of Selves.

Every Cell has its own Body.

Every Self its own Body.

The Mind is the State governing

Body and Soul, Body Soul and Soul Body.

The Ego can be Prime Minister or President,

Autocrat or Tyrant, or Philosopher King,

Socialism begins as a State of Mind.

In which Thoughts are the Democratic

Representatives of every Cell and Self

That forms part of our Body and Soul, and

Our State Mind is one that allows to recognise 

In each and every Member of Society, an

Embodiment of that Secret Society of the Self

The Self that is our very own Soul.
