New Politician

You cannot have grasped the quandary
The elections must hold
Then be rigged
Before results are announced
To reveal the choice.
You fret in itchy speed
Yet you must tarry
For due process:
The elections must hold
Then be rigged
Before results are announced
To reveal the choice.
You call yourself a genius
Have booked in the States
Degree marrying another
But do not see that
The elections must hold
Then be rigged
Before results are announced
To reveal the choice.
You shout yourself hoarse
At the many rallies
Where you throw away money;
Your group is modern
You dream since you sleep,
Fail to see how
The elections must hold
Then be rigged
Before results are announced
To reveal the choice.
I have warned you
To join the winning party
To master its lords
And serve their antics,
But you are proud
Know the compound logic
Ignore the facile that
The elections must hold
Then be rigged
Before results are announced
To reveal the choice.
Now you brood
New politician you be;
Africa is cursed, you declare
But ignore the whole
The clear truth that
The elections must hold
Then be rigged
Before results are announced
To reveal the choice
And not the victor.
