Politicians


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

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
