My Dislike for Politicians: a Satirical Poem

Updated on July 30, 2017

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

A lizard mocked another crawling fellow

for having those protruding ugly eyes

and for his skin flaky and dirty yellow

all until his water image gave him a surprise.

So I wonder how revealing it might be

if every politician read this fable

maybe he would be willing to suddenly see

his own true image in his shiny table.

And how grotesquely look those other faces

sitting around and busy with group lying

a bunch of lizards crawling in high places

a prehistoric breed that just refuses dying.

Careerism of a surely ugliest kind

based on pretense, cajole and deceiving

a source of knowledge of every duped mind

and of all fallacious collective believing.

I find them both amazing and amusing

at timers almost prone to give them an applause

for being so crafty and skilled at their confusing

while presenting their game as a justified cause.
