Hey That's Politics - Poem by Gregory Allen Uhan

Long lines of
dirty laundry & personal agenda
Mardigras masquerade
corporate mouthpiece cavalcade

Rostrum posturing - self promotion
Party paranoia propaganda - knee jerk reactive
public explosions!

Piggy banks stuffed with
broken promise vouchers...
Confidence of voters -
hope and change betrayed
in exchange for back door
return delivery
capital campaign

One message - one slogan - one priority …
the politician neglects the people
while faithfully serving - 'Me'

    This is the story everywhere, why do we give so much power to a single politician, how does he gain so much invincible power? through us common man! ! and yet despite all the evidences on how he continues to serve himself and his self interests, we continue to empower them. Time to correct our politics and take control. (Report) Reply
