Treasure Island

Sandra Feldman


People


People are silly,
People are strange,
'The People have Spoken'
And yet we are slaves,
Not maybe in shackles,
There are Mental slaves too
What do you think Politicians, do?
They lie and enslave you,
A 'Bad Motely crew, '
Always taking advantage,
Of gullible you,
But people deserve it,
Because they are cruel,
And selfish, and stupid,
And easy to fool.

    Very true of politicians across the world alike. Be they Europeans, Americans, Asians or any other, they are a lot without whom we cant do a thing, and same time they are a curse. Poem is nicely worded and I like it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
