Panjandrum was a rocket-propelled cart full
of explosives but also
panjandrum is someone who thinks
they carry great authority and influence

and I am up late, single dadding,
and I can’t not think of panjandrums,
or those who cater to their whims.

How Brad Dourif played both Piter de Vries
and Grima Wormtongue
and how we live in Dune of the Rings:

merciless houses grinding their edges
against the wheel of commerce
while above them a great evil lurks,
and forges, and fears for his footing.
