The Peter Leaders.

The Peter Leaders.



Like deflated

joy dolls they are

forced by dictates

of society,

to stand smiling sadly

next to an extroverted,

often perverted

man of the hour,

under the media spotlights

for using his power

to seek out affairs

other than that of the state,.

From the Oval orifice,

to Newt's hypocrisy,

trying to impeach Clinton,

while he himself

was diddling someone

other than his wife.

Marilyn's fling with JFK,

later John Edwards woeful

cheating on his cancer ridden wife,

and as far back as

the colonial presidents

enjoying slave relations.

Our leaders are

often found following

the point of their tailspin

to any willing and able admirer,

beneath the heat of the public eye.

They dare to take chances,

and wives  and children get hurt,

and then they must

stand shamed

by his side to make

all appear normal

suffering in

tight lipped silince

as glory is forfeited

to a spew

on a dark blue

cocktail dress.

Yes and men keep doing it to women everyday like that bugger Tiger Woods and now Sandra Bullock and that bastard Jesse James, I knew he was trouble when he married her, wtf was she doing with that loser anyway and she poured her heart out to him when she won the oscar OMG don't even get me started...I need a drink. Great hub by the way.
