Political Martyr: a Poem
Living everyone's life other than his own
this political martyr doesn't even live
while wasting his time as a tiny pawn
with nothing to change, nothing to achieve.
Playing some heroics of a loud mouthed schnook
he is trading dreams for some sterile nightmares
like having jumped out of a comic strip book
he keeps rebelling while no one really cares.
A self-appointed reformer he picks all losing fights
blind to his futile ranting around
seeing all kinds of violated rights
he can't make a touchdown to a solid ground.
His agenda is noble, his mission humane
as he keeps shouting something patriotic
so we can't call him completely insane
but certainly confused and little idiotic.
For, ultimately nothing is ever affected
and even revolutions never brought about content
with every careerist so obvious, yet elected
reminding of a making love without consent.
