On Politicians - Poem by Francis Duggan

Many of them with their words quite ambiguous 'tis their way of being wise
And for to cling to their positions of power they do tell heaps of lies
And we want to believe them we are naive one must suppose
The noxious weed it does not look or smell anything like a rose.

I do not trust politicians since they feather their own nest
Though they tell us for the Country that they are doing their best
With them it's favours for self and family and favours for a mate
And take care of our own and to hell with the State.

Though not all of politicians act or think in this way
The majority of them far from perfect and 'twould be fair to say
That honest politicians to say the least are rare
Of self and their own needs most of them quite aware.

For to lie to the voters to them seems quite okay
And to their high office respect they don't pay
In their way of life it does pay to deceive
And bigger fool you if them you do believe.
