why created a monster

why create a monster

Today or any other.
A legitimate question, is it not?

But people do it all the time.  Massive spending
to loosen debt.  Ideological tirades to make a
point.  Spend more than you got
(in dollars or sense)
and somehow the status quo will change.  
We learned this lesson as children
on our beds, excorcising creatures in the night
drooling under the bed
by holding pillows just so, blanket cover
with a single air hole.

Do not fear thy monsters. You are frightening enough.
