YEAH - maybe it ain't really a Poem? Maybe it don't Rhyme - SO WHAT?

Maybe I post it here because MORE people MIGHT read it?

In the famous words of Winnie The Pooh -
"IS ANYBODY IN THERE?"




EMBEDDED POLITICIANS

© - 06-05-08 - Tom Hyland

A Young Lad or Lass Graduates High School.
Goes to College - Majors in Politic Science.
Then obtains a Law Degree,
Passes the Bar and gets a Job.

Those who pursue Politics eventually Run for an Office.
After getting Elected, shortly he or she starts to Learn the System.
“Back-Scratching - Nepotism - Pork Barrel - Prevarication -
Special Interest Groups - Bribery - Kick-Backs - Corruption!”

These Daily Tools are Employed with Agility and Finesse.
“Representing” Constituents is relegated to being an Oxymoron.
The Prevaricator Elect Stupifies the Sheep-le Elect.
Who, in turn, Stupidly and Continuously Re-Elect.

Thusly, Embedding Occurs, Ad Nauseum!
Through “Contributions” and Political “Favors” a Bond is Made.
The “Constant Incumbent” becomes both Rich and Fat -
Not to mention - Arrogant and Unbearable.

This process is neither Political, nor Scientific!
A more Accurate or “Politically Correct” Title would Be:
“Sheep Fleecing” or “How to Lie, Cheat, and Steal” -
Or even - “How to Shed your Skin like a Snake!”

The favorite expression of Lawyers is a Latin Term:
“Maintain the Status Quo!’
The English Translation is: “RE-ELECT ME DUMMY!”
Subliminal Embedding?

“Why did the Lawyer Cross the Road?”
Because He/She must Hone the Talent of Crossing Everything!
Criss-Cross - Double-Cross - Triple-Cross -
One Step Forward - Two Steps Back -
Constant Regression keeps She/He on Track!

Instead of Embedded Reporters in All our Wars,
What if Attorneys - like maybe Congress - were Substituted?
And maybe a few other Administration Officials, Like:
The PREZ - The VP - The Speaker - the Secretary of Defense?

WOW! Instead of Embedded Prevaricators In PLUSH,
Lifelong Careers of Profiteering and Warmongering,
Maybe they would return to an Honest Life of actually WORKING?
Certainly Better than being CANNON-FODDER, Right?
OH - I E D FODDER is more Apropos!

ALAS! ALACK! WHY THIS ATTACK?
Well, maybe I’m being too Hard on them? NAH!
Embedded is Synonymous with IN-BED:
In-Bed with OIL Corporations - In-Bed with Saudis -
In-Bed with Media - In-Bed with War Profiteers -
In-Bed with Federal Reserve BANKERS -
In-Bed with Mafioso and Illuminati ?
In-Bed with Pharmaceutical Manufacturers -
In-Bed with Insurance Companies -
In-Bed with Utility Companies -
Heck, a Few Even - In-Bed with Professional HO’s!

In-Bed - Embedded - perhaps INBRED?

AH! That’s it! These POBROCITOS can’t Help it -
“The DEVIL Made Them Do It!”

Aw, aren't they cute in this photo. So darling a shot. I loved pulling this up at this hr of the night, quarter to midnight. Love animals, the photo gets to me now. As for the write, don't get into politics much. Always say the wrong thing. But not the wrong thing about the person. I like your style here and it is so much info in it, I must read it again. As for Bush, don't even ask me about him, I could write a book about his faults and deceits, etc. Awful man, I think, if you want my opinion. I never voted for him at all. Glad I didn't like some fools did and regret it now.

I wonder, sometimes, if there's anything dirtier than politics. Can't be very many.
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner
Tom,

What gets me is they make the same old empty promises and fail to deliver - unless it serves their interests, their pockets - no wonder we feel we've been raped - because we have, over and over and over - I really like how you compared embedded with INbed - because we are - unwilling partner - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Armed Patriots by Will Clark

Would you stroll barefoot through snake-infested grass? Only if you want those snakes to kill you. Would you wait for an enemy to attack you before you consider owning a weapon? On..
