Fools Are In Parliament (Alternative Version)


I take the time
To try and meet a politician
who I believe is wise,
I find him easily
but not alone.

But of two different personalities,
a wise man is found In a place,
secluded and coiled like an isolated insect
and his reason for making decision
On his own like wise men do

But he is surely a fool
who develops the art
of listening and making
decisions simply on a basis
of majority opinion,

a mass leader-a fool,
who is sent to work
in establishing our fate in the parliament.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
