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 Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
