Politicians - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

They know the truth
Yet they tricked the truth
They see the truth
Yet they are blind to the truth
They hide the truth
They have phobia for truth
Always denying the truth
They preach truth
Their truth is veiled
Laded with politricks
That is their truth
So, read their lips
When they speak the truth

    Yes, politicians know the difference between a lie and the truth, yet they stretch the truth, making it become their lie to tell the people. Very corrupt way to run a government. Great concept simple and direct! Thank you, RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    A very succinct and simple poem, but replete with wisdom and beauty. This style reminds me of Langston Hughes, whom in very few words can convey a deep, thought-provoking perception. (Report) Reply

    But, when the same minded person distorts the truth under the guise of friend that's more horrible! (Report) Reply
