The Politician and the Scientist

The scientist masturbates
The politician has sex

The scientist counts numbers
The politician counts money

The scientist gets paid for making language
The politician pays people to make language

Things are things outside myself.
Things are words in my brain.

I am a manipulator
I manipulate

I create from past experience
I make the news

The world is round
My body is round

Space is crooked
I am not crooked

I am a politician
I am a scientist.
