What say you Politician?

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


What say you politician,

to the words of reproach

launched at your head,

it being the largest part of your anatomy.

Do you duck and weave,

or perhaps spin like a top.

Perhaps your skull is too thick,

for anything to pass through.

What say you about the mess you’ve made,

the contracts you’ve signed in dark corners.

What of the people you hurt,

the souls that bear the brunt of your allegiances.

Who will suffer the pain of your ambition,

if not the people whom you represent.

Aren’t people worth the paper of which you seek,

the payment of favours and collateral damage.

What say you politician, in your defence?

Who will stand for you after prosperity is passed,

your usefulness a shadow in the wake of movement,

ever forward, ever evolving under the iron fist of dark objectives.

What say you before sleep at night?

Does your soul shed tears for all you do,

you impropriety, your corruption, your weak values?

What say you, one without code?

Why do we open the door for your ascendance?

Why are you still here?

Why don’t we care enough to rid ourselves of your breed?

Your leadership is an illusion.

      Thanks Binaya, glad you enjoyed it. For politicians the photos are interchangeable.

      Amusing, funny and yet very beautiful.
