Never Believe A Government Minister


Never believe what any Government Minister tell you for on misinformation politicians seem to thrive
They are expert at spreading of propaganda and without deception they would not survive
They create wars and give rise to racism and they know how to make an enemy
And they mostly to blame for mistrust that leads to hatred and for a lack of World harmony.

Too few politicians one might say upstanding yet with the majority they seem to have their way
And far too many gullible who believe them when they have something negative to say
Like we must get rid of that nasty foreign leader by imprisoning him or putting him to death
For too long now he has been causing trouble and to World peace he's becoming a threat.

Never believe any Government Minister for to lie to them seems to come naturally
And that many people believe what they tell them to say the least is worrying to me
For politicians along with the media the main culprits for spreading false propaganda that create
Racial intolerance that leads to divisions and give rise to war through the medium of hate.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
