Diabolical - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Isn't it ironic,
That those who advocate spending cuts...
And less government around to touch,
Have themselves had once consented...
But today with a wish for them out of their lives.
Because they have had enough,
Of being spied upon with prying eyes.

Isn't it ironic,
These are the same people who wish,
More money shown that is spent...
On local authorities and federal officials,
To protect them 24/7 to feel safe and defended.
Since there has been an increase,
Of a decadence unleased with a frolic meant.

And too diabolical has been the feeding,
Hypocrisies they can not cease...
That have come to affect,
The manifesting of their delusions...
Feasted upon with no regret to examine.
Or self inspect to do at their best?
Isn't this ironic or just a reflection of a blinded mindset.
