As If Life Without Power - Poem by Francis Duggan

As if life without power is a meaningless thing
Ageing political leaders to their power base try to cling
It does seem their egos are out of control
And to garner more power in life their only goal
For to cling to power they spread rumors of fear
And negative stuff from them is all we hear
Ambiguous with their words they know how to deceive
But then suppose we believe what we want to believe
To woo gullible voters they turn on the charm
Make believe that they can protect us from harm
For victims of terrorism shed crocodile tears
Woo votes by hugging babies and silly old dears
And we vote them back in on Election day
The fools never learn as a wise one did say.
