Politicians, That Strange Breed: A Poem
Politicians are said to be double-faced
throughout their turbulent career hike
but they also show a lack of taste
wearing the one not easy to like.
Their love they express in a slogan
to kids they talk in clichés they learn
with mouth hot like an ass on toboggan
all your applauding gets nothing in return.
Politicians don't need you but for your vote
to them you are merely a faceless crowd
and you could all use a Noah's boat
as they rule despotic and proud.
To most of them greed is not about money
for usually they are starting already rich
see it all sad or pathetically funny
but power is their only itch.
To feel in control is their burning desire
that feeling at the top their huge drive
for their lies to find an easy buyer
is all that makes them feel alive.
