I. Dilettante / Dilettante (005.1)
I’m always richer than Reality,
more than what numbers proclaim.
I’m breathing, seething and self aware,
indifferent to money and fame.
Men cannot influence my decisions.
Women barely touch my heart.
I walk this world a dilettante.
What a wonderful beautiful part.
Mako The Poet
II. Dilettante / Really (005.2)
Your face unsuited for spectacles,
flaunts your body prim and proud.
Your hair appears dry and lanky,
with a perm that speaks aloud.
You have really, REALLY big breasts.
The kind that makes a woman cry.
I have to admit that while staring,
I can barely keep it dry.
Mako The Poet
III. Dilettante / Sorrow (005.3)
You hold a heart shaped balloon,
but you’re at least twenty years old.
I’m bothered by Climate Change,
today feels unusually cold.
You’re definitely not innocent,
I can tell by the tone of your voice.
I may need to change my lifestyle,
but it feels like staging a choice.
Turns out you bought it for your niece.
Whom you’re bound to meet tomorrow.
I wonder if humanity will last,
my heart abound with sorrow.
Mako The Poet
IV. Dilettante / Name (005.4)
You give me this furious look,
the kind I know is going to hurt.
You move your ass onto the bedside.
Still crying, you pull up your skirt.
“You don’t even remember my name!“
You’re gone before my witty reproach.
I stare at the Renoir on my ceiling.
‘Maybe it’s time to hire a French coach…’

V. Dilettante / The Cold Shoulder (005.5)
The Cold Shoulder
Your posture a martyr with pink shoes.
Silence provides me with sufficient clues.
You’re still angry I was drunk last night.
You’re still upset that I refused to fight.
I know that when your lips are smudged.
And you knot your hair like a nun.
It’s time for me to contemplate my sins.
To be at your side without fun.
Mako the Poet
V. Dilettante / Seduction (005.6)
Blond sits opposite to me.
I feel too tired to greet.
Her phone and body aloud,
with multitasking heat.
She talks to a distant girlfriend.
Flirts with a boy to her right.
Plays with curls and smiles,
while she surveys muscular might.
Done with chest and back training.
I really, really don’t care.
All I need is protein and bananas.
Then… she reveals no underwear.

The timeless Wisdom of Alexander Hamilton:
“A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.”
“Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of man will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without constraint.”
“Experience teaches, that men are often so much governed by what they are accustomed to see and practice, that the simplest and most obvious improvements… are adopted with hesitation, reluctance, and slow gradations.”
“When a government betrays the people by amassing too much power and becoming tyrannical, the people have no choice but to exercise their original right of self-defense — to fight the government and change it ways.”
“Man is either governed by his own laws – constituting freedom – or the laws of another – embodying slavery. Are you willing to become slaves? Will you give up your freedom, your life and your property without a single struggle?”
“No man has a right to enslave his fellow creatures.”
“Government is frequently and aptly classed under two descriptions – a government of force, and a government of laws; the first is the definition of despotism – the latter, one of liberty.”
“Good constitutions are formed upon a comparitive balance between the liberty of the individual with the strength of government: If the tone of either be too high, the other will be weakened too much. It is the happiest possible mode of conciliating these objects, to institute one branch peculiarly endowed with sensibility, another with knowledge and firmness. Through the opposition and mutual interaction of these bodies, the government will reach, in its regular operations, a solid balance between liberty and power.”
“Every individual of the community at large has an equal right to the protection of government.”
“The practice of arbitrary imprisonment has been, in all ages, the favorite and most formidable instrument of tyranny.”
“The people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the government when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.”
“A struggle for liberty is in itself respectable and glorious… when conducted with magnanimity, justice and humanity, but if sullied by crimes and extravagancies, will quickly lose its forceful respectability.”
“Civil liberty is only natural liberty, modified and secured by the sanctions of civil society. It is not a thing, in its own nature, precarious and dependent on human will and caprice; but it is conformable to the constitution of man, as well as necessary to the well-being of society.”
“There may be in every government a few choice spirits, who may act from more worthy motives but one grevious error in our judgement of mankind is that we often suppose human beings more honest than they are. Human Nature’s strongest impulses are self-preservation, ambition and greed.”
“Man is a reasoning rather than a reasonable animal.”
“Foreign influence is truly the Grecian horse to a republic. We cannot be too careful to exclude its influence.”
“It is of the greatest consequence that (public) debt should be remoulded into such a shape as will bring the expenditure of the nation at par with its income.”
“Nothing can more affect national prosperity than a constant and systematic attention to extinguish the present debt and to avoid as much as possibly the incurring of any new debt.”
“A feeble executive implies a feeble execution of the government. A feeble execution is but another phrase for a bad execution; and a government ill executed, whatever may be its theory, must be, in practice, a bad government.”
“Real liberty is never found in despotism or the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments.”
“It’s not tyranny we desire; it’s a just, limited, federal government.”
