This Test

The state of affairs
is perplexing at best
and I can't help but wonder
if this is a test...
Is it multiple choice
or a fill in the blank...?
but, the pen's out of ink
and there's noone to thank!
The curve is corrupt and
the powers that be
are exempt from the grade
by their own policy!
Its enough to discourage
this student of life
when greed is the key
and politically rife.

No_clue you are in good company with those who are baffled. Most of what we see and hear is just noise. This nonsense will pass and things will again settle down.

I second the motion! =) I feel completely the same, so awesome put out in a poem! The trouble with politicians I have is that they say one thing before they get elected and 180 degree turn once they are elected... It wrecks my brain to pieces.
