Politics...the Absence of Truth

Updated on October 30, 2016

The political scene, caught in between,

As for the truth, and only-half-truths,

Decades of bald-faced lies, to separate ties,

Their researched results often proves.

From the iceberg's top, to its base,

Not always to embrace, all that's spoken,

Every politician knows, any untruths,

Lengthens a nose, innocent trusts broken.

Too often to carry so much weight,

when the elected are thought as great,

While in office just only a few days,

Supporters, often betrays, is our fate.

Personality often goes a long way,

in what they do, to say, as all to fool,

A usual case, history records disgrace,

This factor dictates the political rule.

Although some may grin and to bare it,

Yet, when asked they may not swear it,

As they're caught in lies, truths and untruths,

Seen quite a lot and broadcast on the news.

Is our responsibility to sort out the trash,

Then to interpret their comments as rash,

Root out the facts, and hold them at bay,

Not to really matter what they may all say.

        I would never want to put the job of a Politician onto anyone. They have to meet the needs of many people; and when their back is placed in a corner, they have to come up smiling when they may not feel like that at all. However, in saying that, I am sooo over all the deception and manipulations together with a minority ruling the masses. Of which this top minority don't really seem to care or understand the needs of the everyday person.

        Diplomatic and refined, whonu. Thank you for the creativity and sensitivity

        Well, this election certainly has been stressful. I got discouraged a long time ago, but somehow find myself not able to give up the fight to at least try and make people see the light on Donald Trump. He is so bad! Lol...I just used some of his famous words! Oh No!

        But, seriously, I do not understand the problem of decision here. I know Hillary is not perfect, but I certainly feel safer with her in the seat than I would with the Devil himself. I just wrote my last plea to the world, and I'm exhausted! Nice words! :)

        Your poetic words reminded me of the fact that even though I am not in the U.S. now I am absolutely terrified of Election Day.

        We shall try to wade through this together my friend and take the bad with the good until it can all be washed clean in the public eye. That may take a while but I believe we will come out for the better in the long run. Blessings. whonu

        Nicely done. I was trying to find something today. I was looking to find something from one side or the other just talking about the positive of one candidate over the other. Could not find it.
