More on Democracy

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb
Voting on what to have for lunch,”
Said Benjamin Franklin? No, that’s a sham;
He never beat Gary Strand to the punch.
In any event, I no longer agree
With the sentiment that the speaker implied.
The alternatives to democracy
Would logically show an uglier side:
A wolf could outvote any number of sheep,
As often occurs in the natural realm.
I have to conclude that it’s better to keep
The largest number of folks at the helm.
