Damn The People

 

You,

you New Yorkers elected them!

Bastions of Democrats!

New York City

brought the votes

to the Democratic machine!

Huge cities

from east to west

with your

millions of welfare votes

with your

millions upon millions

of  votes

brought this

narcissist to office,

brought his

self-serving

uncaring administration

to office

to do not what

you the people, 

you the city

 that brought them

to office want

but

to do as they want.

Damn the people!

"We", they say,

"we know what’s best!

Damn the stupid people."

Shove their

self-serving

future

vote getting theories

down your throats.

Force their idea

of what medical

care you are to receive

down your throats.

Damn the people!

Throw you

and your children

and your children’s

children into

never ending debt.

They say

"lets try the

admitted killers

of thousands

as your buildings

collapsed.

Damn the people,

bring the murderers

of thousands back

to the scene

and give them the

same rights as you,

the rights of you

the people."

Give the murderers

the rights

of you the people

that brought this

narcissist to office,

that brought his

self-serving

uncaring administration

to office.

"You,"

they say,

"you the people

of New York City

we don’t give

a damn

what you think!

We don’t give

a damn

what you want!

Damn the people!

We do what

we want

not what you,

not what

you the people want.

Damn the people!"

I have a feeling they're going to get what they asked for, while the rest of U.S. suffers - powerfully penned, Mark. Well done.

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

agree or not Mark, sounds like a good poetic rant to me,

Quite a rant, Mark; I can tell you are passionate about these situations and happenings... ...and I am way out here on the west coast of Canada. Love and peace to you,

You ain't gonna be popular with our AD New Yorkers, remember, they are the ones that coined that phrase about sleeping with the fishes!
