Politically Correct: A Poem of Inspiration

Updated on August 9, 2016
What is my true worth...
What is my true worth...


What is the true worth of any man, if you could hold his soul in your hand,

Would it be as cold as ice, or warm, in comparison, is ours to understand?

When can you tell if a woman is truthful, is it to be in her smile, as beautiful,

Should you trust in the rhetoric, a persisting act, seemingly to be so dutiful?

Can we really tell if a person is honest, or only politically correct?
Can we really tell if a person is honest, or only politically correct?


Politickers will readily flock to a candidate, one who does all their bidding,

Despite a majority, its quota filled, whether obvious or not, who's kidding?

While the honest, reputable, so respectful, his words spoken to the winds,

Never given a chance, as that of his opponent, to depend upon his friends.

I'm winning because I know the right frogs in this pond...
I'm winning because I know the right frogs in this pond...


When we vote at the poles, are we voting for a man, or just a party's plan,

Will all of our requests be met, or is it just a party, our dancing to a band?

Are there any rotten apples in the barrel, or a spoiled chicken in the pot,

Is every promise made by the running man, haunted by some he forgot?



Hello... don't tell on me...I'm trying to hide in the bushes...
Hello... don't tell on me...I'm trying to hide in the bushes...


We can't always please all of the people, all of the time, anyway,

Just try to keep folks happy on the mill pond, to do what you say!

Please tell everybody, who listens, us frogs are not cold blooded,

Don't support a reptile, his flickering tongue, one we once studied.

Please take me out of this mud!!!
Please take me out of this mud!!!


A person dedicated to the truth, and works very hard, is a lot of proof,

They're down to earth, understanding of all issues, never to act aloof.

If asked a question, if politically correct, or not, get to the point, it's right,

An honest soul shines very bright, though deep inside, is still in our sight.

Hey...I'm an honest soul...vote for me!
Hey...I'm an honest soul...vote for me!


Just remember to never give up, you're the captain of this fine vessel,

Calmer tides are soon to be here, despite the stormy seas to wrestle.

Though it sometimes seems you're sinking like a small can of sardines,

When in fact, you're one of the Navy's best, of its nuclear submarines.

Remember, us frogs are good swimmers, too!
Remember, us frogs are good swimmers, too!

      Thank you my friend. We would all benefit if we did not view the political trash of which we are confronted daily. It is divisive...hey...that must be the whole idea. Divide and conquer! whonu

      These are the times that I am happy that I don't have a television, as my mind would be filled with modern propaganda. You brought up such valid points.

      Oh I love the frog! Clever use of it on this topic. I agree that we cannot please everyone, some times people just have to deal with it.

      It's amazing how politics rules us and yet there are so many in whom we should not trust. What to do when we want to vote best?!

      Great verse to set us thinking.

      What's your frog's name? I'll write him in on the ballot. He'd be a better choice than we're presented with at the moment!

      Yes indeed, whonu, a very politically-correct poem and inspirational way of thinking. Every time I read something on politics, whether it be positive or even my own writing of reason these days, I find myself sighing a lot. I think I'm tired, but there is no escape if you turn on your computer or TV. I hope when the election is over, it will calm down. However, I know this will only be if one particular candidate wins. If the other does, I fear we are doomed to live restless.
