Out of a Sheer Dislike of Politicians: A Poem
A lizard mocked another crawling fellow
for having those protruding, funny eyes
and for his skin so flaky and ugly yellow
until a water image gave him a surprise.
So I wonder how revealing it might be
for opposing politicians to read this fable
and maybe they might take a curious peek
at their own image shown on their shiny table.
And all those other grotesquely phony faces
sitting around and busy with a common lie
a bunch of lizards crawling at high places
a prehistoric breed that refuses to die.
Political careerism, surely ugly kind
based on pretense, cajole, and deceiving
source of food for each and every gullible mind
and source of so much fallacious collective believing.
I find them both --- amazing and often amusing
at times almost prone to give them an applause
for being so crafty and skilled with their abusing
while presenting their game as a justified cause.
