Political Martyr: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.


Blind party loyalty will be our downfall. We must follow the truth wherever it leads.

-- Da Shanne Stokes

Living everyone's life but his own

this political martyr doesn't even live

while wasting his time like a tiny pawn

with nothing to change, nothing to achieve.

Playing some heroics of a loud mouth schnook

he is trading dreams for sterile nightmares

like jumping out of a comic strip book

just rebelling while no one cares.

There he is sacrificing his neglected private life

for a "good of many" that he doesn't know

going through bitterness of a futile strife

politically blinded he just can't let go.

Self-appointed reformer in losing fights

oblivious to craziness of a bitching around

while he's seeing every kind of violated rights

he cannot make a touchdown to the solid ground.

His party nothing short of a religion

while it simply has to be always right

not seeing he's being taken for a pigeon

as he's thriving in Darkness, scared of Light.

His agenda is noble, his mission is humane

as he keeps shouting something patriotic

so we can't call him completely insane

but certainly confused, a little idiotic.

For ultimately nothing gets really affected

even revolutions never brought content

every liar so obvious and yet elected

reminding of sex without consent.
