A Spoiled Brat: A Political Satirical Poem
It’s about a little spoiled brat
up to you to guess her name
to all mousy kids she was a cat
playing a cop was her pet game.
You may compare her to a country if you wish
or even to one of her far but closest friends
but definitely someone to keep on a leash
to bring their aggressiveness to an end.
Sticking her big nose in everyone’s affairs
but playing threatened by all of them around
so if they took her beating the fault was theirs
while she made sure the truth was not to be found.
She lied to her folks who were so easy to fool
whole family being of same righteous kind
everyone acting sophisticated and cool
proud in their hearts, shrewd in mind.
In those many blocks surrounding
all talked whether in secret or aloud
the brat was overdue for a grounding
forced to stay home away from a crowd.
Well, sorry but there is no happy ending
for, that little spoiled brat is still at large
it's the rules' fault they can take bending
but no need to buy it -- it's free of charge.
