Politics

by Catherinebutterfly


I watched it,

I tried to work it,

But I could not do it.

 

Why? Because

 

Itís dirty,

Itís nasty,

Itís corrupted at every level.

in the seat of the mayors, governors

it does not stop, those desiring it lives

are scotting hot but honest is something they

are not.

Look at the seekers, seeking the presidency

watch how they fight for it,

Finding themselves, loosing themselves

Seldom does one quit it.

This is what is known as politics.

 

Mob bosses from Capone to Giancana

Would have envied it

Hitler could have been at home with it,

Friends are rewarded by it,

Enemies are destroyed for it.

I tell you what I am speaking of is

nothing other then politics

 

One of their main strategies,

as in any oppressive regime,

they are known to silence their critics

speaking against them

that is running or working in it.
running politicians promise the world to you

if you but vote them in,

then you never hear from them again

no matter what kind of mess you find yourself in

what else can this be called other than
dirty, dealing, underhanded, politics
