Treasure Island

Gregory Allen Uhan

(December 24,1987 / Warren, Michigan)

Hey That's Politics

Long lines of
dirty laundry & personal agenda
Mardigras masquerade
corporate mouthpiece cavalcade

Rostrum posturing - self promotion
Party paranoia propaganda - knee jerk reactive
public explosions!

Piggy banks stuffed with
broken promise vouchers...
Confidence of voters -
hope and change betrayed
in exchange for back door
return delivery
capital campaign

One message - one slogan - one priority …
the politician neglects the people
while faithfully serving - 'Me'

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
