Accuse Me For Being Embittered

It has been convenient for these creeps to lie.
And award themselves positions of power.

Someone assigned to monitor,
The proper and correct use of the law.
Has stated how he has served in Viet Nam.
Without a bit of this experience.
And I spent time in the military...
During that era.

Losing my comrades, neighbors and friends.
And this pretentious man can make claims...
How he served with them.

Accuse me for being embittered.
Apologies I'll never make for it!

And he represents a region,
Where deceit, theft...
And the bigots and the racists reign.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
