"By nature,
  we are all political animals."

I deem this norm-owl, for my ears
listen in earnest dog-mantic predictions
which stretch out pass the fiscal cliff;
like an ELE-infant based upon distance.

Abandoning divinity for Maud-lien attempts
to reduce pressure through oppression - tense;
like a turtle shell. . . coral-lading communes
in prides of prancing ant-elopes.

'Tis his-story acquaint to the oystered-us
in speech, in skill and in pursuits of free. . .
dumb. Chirped from post-poaching sea-sons
hunting up for those who mar-sue, people.

Charlie fox-plot towards the pleasure
mauling - hue-main Hun-duress;
disowning. Rich, you-all for inclination,
the bare-inn, ripe with cent-impede. . .

  Petraeus, animals have linear currency
to the kings and queens of sanity.
Hello everyone,

This piece is very heavy and was a delight to write. The premise is off of Aristotle's quote, "By nature, we are all political animals." And reaffirms the idea by showing us just how controlled by politics we are as a race.

The skill idea was to take words and use smaller words to create that word through mimicking its sound. This gave each word a double meaning along with a sense of freshness. I do hope you enjoy it.

The name comes from the idea that in the midst of depth and creation covered by the poem, there is always simplicity.

Title: Aristotle Got It Right
Written by: Tristan Cody.

Thank you for your time,
Tristan Cody.
