Trust Me! (Would I Lie to You?)
Do you trust your politicians? It seems they will promise everything to win your votes when they are on the campaign trail only to break most or all their promises when they get elected. I think this poem is a typical example of political promises.
A Must Watch Video.
I'll look after you,
Make health carefree.
I'll fix the economy.
A good education for every child,
That's the key.
I'll reduce taxes for all.
I'll bring our troops home,
And cut defence spending.
No more foreign intervention.
I'll create more jobs,
Get people off the streets.
I'll protect the environment,
Reverse climate change, you'll see.
Reduce fossil fuel dependence.
I'll acknowledge our Indigenous,
Stop mass shootings and bombings.
If you want a better lifestyle,
And care about your country.
I give you my promise,
Vote for me. Trust me!
