Political Illusion---Dogs Expected to Meow: A Satirical Poem
Political conflicts always remind
of animal shelters and that noisy blend
of barking and meowing with no hope to find
a common language that all would understand.
As if trying to just get on each other's nerve
dogs keep telling cats to keep quiet
while cats calling dogs names they deserve
so all you can hear is an incessant riot.
Neither side knows what the others mean
they only know what they want to say
and you wouldn't find a crazier scene
in animated comedies of this day.
Each politician sounding so convincing
like a dog or cat protesting in their cage
and if you fall for any words they are mincing
you might as well join that futile rage.
It's a sheer hate and intolerance game
not even trying to sound sane
with both-sided reasoning so shallow and lame
just focused on opposing without any gain.
