A truth of Politics

You know that it is true
But you disagree
I and your conscience
Sit together
Though we have a gap

I know that
I feel it
In another time
With another
Same thing what I believe
You enhance
As your ideas

I am happy
In any case we are similar

I know that
In practice
Words and actions cheat each other
I feel in practice
Appearance wrapped up eyes in face
Try to hide the guilty

Image which is put on
Is not clear to the others
They rely on it with you behind

It is called politics
Honesty minus politics
But you talk politics of humanity
Humanity vanished politics
A business without ethics

The others accept
Even it is known
You and others together
Reject me I feel
But I know that
They know the truth
But you don't
That the rejection brings me
A pain
But a truth of happiness
Of a glass of wine in it

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
