~Politician~

"Arushi Ahuja"

He perched upon a throne so high
Unable to see Just below and under
Stood so many of us in fury and wonder
But not at him, at his ghastly blunder!
He once vowed with his palm facing us
That he would abide by Constitutional Laws,
But taken by power and riches and lust
Greedy politician betrays the voters!
And excuses run in his every syllable
As he tugs along the weight of his crimes
that makes him into mostly a criminal,
Corruption, murder, larceny for a dime!
Teeth gritted and shaking with blue hatred
We loathe the laws he propels on us
For his very own profit is catered
Leaving us with soggy crumbles!
"It's a blunder, you Idiot!" we think
again and again we shall never vote for you,
But lo! He plays the political game,
And there! he wins the elections again!

I have used two of the three challenges given by Margaret that I'd never written for before:

Thank you Margaret, Grapeling and Kenia for such an interesting prompt!

  1. Yes, we are blind and stupid to vote for them again and again ~ In Toronto, we have our own Rob Ford who is running for re-election again as Mayor ~ Tell me Toronto if you are stupid enough to put him back in the saddle after so many scandals ~

  2. They play us like musical instruments, don't they? I think it's because so many people are too lazy to inform themselves of even their own best interests, and just respond to the Pavlovian buzzwords politicians know so well.

  6. … quite the zinger of a poem and spot on. They are all around the globe - They play a tune and too many people "dance" without thinking. Nicely played.
