Politicians say so much, yet very little…


They speak of changes to be made,

They tell of nothing that has made the grade,

Our government is falling apart,

We need to, all of us, make a new start,

Seems all they say from their mouths does smell of a fart…


Each election they speak of change,

I think all these politicians have the mange,

In one direction they relate to the right,

Then turn around and speak in another without insight…


Do we elect the right ones?

Better to send to Washington our sons,

Those that are still pre-pubescent,

At least in that way our country would not be run,

By a politician that allows his dick to this country represent…

"We the people..." is written down somewhere, no doubt filled with cob webs and a dead fly or two. What we have is no longer a democracy... this, my lovely Eddie M, is an empire! Make no mistake.

Your commentary is filled with truth... and, (egads) it only scratches the surface. katy xox

I have to admit, it boggles the mind, but then, it is all according to what you want for the nation and who you want to be sitting up there as it is happening. Still . . . mind boggling.

Its a power thing. We vote, they get the power - and that's it! Thats where it ends. What remains is just enough bullschitting to keep them on the throne. Love the ending ... lolololol ...
