Government (who needs it?)

I think the answer to the question Who Needs Government is that we all do. This is becoming increasingly obvious when we lose government functions and have to cobble solutions together on our own.
I hoped the shutdown would be over by now and we would be on our way along the highway to the future. But like Rick in Casablanca I was misinformed.

Right now in my own small world everything seems to progress smoothly.
I don’t depend on foodstamps or a government job . I am not applying for a passport. So my life is the greenery of summer slipping away and the chill of winter just a thought in my head. But soon there will be consequences even us low-maintenance people will notice.

Unlike Republicans and anarchists I always knew we needed government.
It is the natural progression of a group of people trying to survive.
So now that it’s gone, where are we going???


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
