What says the philosopher-king?

Spare the face and spoil the pen,
once mighty, but now forgotten:
how the violent aphorisms descend
in the silence of tricky old men:
once the seizing invalids depend
on the strength of other invalids,
the whole world—blind concept that—
abuses all who condescend
to know it in its fullness, the fullness
only corpse-counters and children
unborn ever bothered to survey.
