Politicians Poem

Updated on September 8, 2013

Real issues avoided,

Lies told to distract

Opinions are used

in place of the facts


Public and private lives

Combined without cause

These men are in charge

Of writing our laws


Medical and legal fields

Are well represented

But as for the common man

This group is resented


Even voted out of office

They get a pension for life

While other laid-off citizens

Must deal with their strife


Pork belly projects

And lobbyist control

How can average people

Accomplish their goal?


Detached from their voters

Hundreds of miles away

Little accomplished

In an average work day


A necessary evil,

A system so flawed

Awareness is needed

To break through the facade
