People Everywhere Are Pulling Hair


Politicians have to end,
Their same old lies again.
For reasons why they need to spend,
So many millions to pretend...
If elected they will mend,
All divisions that began...
By their hating in their shared debates,
They take time to defend.
Again.

And those divided should condemn,
The ones who pocket and pretend...
That the money that is sent to them,
Will get them votes to win.
Again!
With a doing to those foolish,
To offend.
Again!

People everywhere are pulling hair,
That's getting thin.
And...
Patience seems to begin,
With everyone to dim.
Again!
With a doing to offend,
Again!

Politicians have to end,
Their same old lies again.
For reasons why they need to spend,
So many millions to pretend...
If elected they will mend,
All divisions that began...
By their hating in their shared debates,
They take time to defend.
Again.

People everywhere are pulling hair,
That's getting thin.
And...
Patience seems to begin,
With everyone to dim.
Again!
With a doing to offend...
Again!

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.
