Daily Dose

From Cool, Calm & Collected: Poems 1960 - 2000, by Carolyn Kizer


- after Pope

When from his cave, young Mao in his youthful mind
A work to renew old China first designed,
Then he alone interpreted the law,
And from traditional fountains scorned to draw:
But when to examine every part he came,
Marx and Confucius turned out much the same.
