Government Unrepresentation

Speeches galore about how a councilwoman wanted
the cafe here at the center as we all sit here
saying to ourselves, 'but we didn't want it'.
How little our city politicians care about what
we really want - as they honor people with
certificates that don't matter at all to us, for
getting the cafe put here for no one, because
we can't afford anything.
Speakers thanking people we don't even know, for
something we'd rather do without.
Typical government bull - not representing any
of us, not caring what we really want.

    The truth is politicians these days see their positions as jobs rather than see themselves as representatives of the people so when you vote you would only be helping them keep their jobs and that's it.nicely penned poem by the way (Report) Reply
