A fair land that is green with rice and also blue with pity,
Black with lies and obfuscations,
Brown with fact and indignation
White of liver, gray of thought,
Tanned by buyers and the bought.
The confluence of two great streams,
A shining, fertile city deems.
Yet the measure of her elevation
Is the effluvium of legislation.
COMMENTARIAT, n. A flock of wool-gatherers.
