The Politicians | A Poem of Social Commentary
Stone cold hearts
they wear on their sleeves,
Proudly polished with the snake oil of hypocrisy,
in a cascade of lies.
Their only care to
All the goods, the riches,
the power--for themselves.
Long forgotten or ignored
are the hard-won battles
Our forefathers fought
just such as these.
