THEY MANIPULATE… NOV 16TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

And we’re not allowed to change the Charter; its just not done,
Even if we pretend and say, we are just doing it for fun,
It doesn’t matter how many scandals they have up there,
It’s like death-with-dignity; they refuse; even if we say a prayer.


Our hand-picked elite aristocrats are in supreme command,
And you better shut up because you are only a hired hand,
You may be in the majority that didn’t vote - you should vote,
No death with dignity for you as our politicians take note.


I get the impression that they avoid these subjects like the plague?
Or if they answer a question; it is extremely vague,
Is this democracy or dictatorship or should we have to ask?
No real set-date elections, referendums and no one up to the task.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
