Quid Pro Quo
Quid Pro Quo in the Latin to mean, a complimentary "This for that",
apparently the standard of measure, in the congress's living, fat.
Is so common, "You scratch my back and I'll do the same in return",
instead of working and sweating, doing a job, justified wages to earn.
More time and effort spent in a common filibustering event, all it takes,
while many sit in slumber, as constitutional protocol, it so often breaks.
The Roman's had a superior model, in their own government, is true,
yet, has this country served the same, an honorable reflection to do?
The kick backs are rampant and out of control, as all there do extoll,
who is to comfort the poor widow, her children left out in the cold?
Just who will help the men in need, that served this country so well,
who spent their time in risking lives, their own bitter taste of Hell?
When will we ever to learn, that right and good should lead the way,
to forgive and forget the bad times, then to strive for a better day?
What does it take to help all to realize, the true meaning, in our lives,
perhaps someday, in future times, if we all are still secure and alive.
Tomorrow is a new day, let us take our lesson of regret, in yesterday,
reach for the shinning and new star we see, in what we do and say.
Our children's lives, now at stake, a better cause, for this, we have to try,
their rightful inheritance and love that we leave, this we should not deny.
