Those Ranting Politicizing Parrots: A Satirical Poem

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

That's what I call street-style socializing.

That's what I call street-style socializing.

In a world filled with hate, prejudice and protest, I find that I too am filled with hate, prejudice and protest.

Bob Gibson

Whether Reps or Dems, the song sounds the same

like two breeds of parrots on neighboring trees

twitting the same crap loaded with blame

using derogatory words as they please.


Paraphrasing incessantly a same pathetic refrain

as if to make sure that they are really being heard

unable to leave the groove of their replaying brain

they keep displaying a mentality of that yappy bird.


Like a bunch of pissed kids denied a candy

they cry in a chorus begging for attention

maybe a cold shower would come handy

or kick in the place too rude to mention.


Whatever they say, you must have heard already

in some thousand versions and so many ways

victorious or whining but certainly steady

with any possible slogan or a phrase.


All political events will unfold on their own

regardless if they are cheering or they cry

besides, nothing in politics is really known

it's only their pet theories they readily buy.


How else could I say it to sound more plain

avoiding what we can't control we stay sane

everything else is energy just wasted in vain

but to understand it -- one would need a brain.
