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 Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
