Our Motto - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Congratulations on your recent victory,
Senator.

'Thank you so much.
We are thrilled to be here.'

We appreciate you granting us access,
For this interview...
And trust your campaign for transparency,
Extends to allow further discussions...
That are open to us in the future.

'Of course.
By all means.'

I'd like to ask a few questions?

'Anything.
We are not going to be,
Like the current administration.
Say one thing and mean another.
Remember I said that.'

I will.
Senator...
You and your collegues won,
Over the other party...
Because of failed policies.
And excessive spending.
Yet...
Tonight,
Not only were we not granted admission,
To your welcoming gala this evening.
But also...
Your party is spending millions,
For this festive gala.
Can you explain that?
This seems to be a contradiction.

'Of course.
There is no contradiction at all.
Had you ever given a surprise party for anyone?
And the surprise was to ensure...
A cushion of funds would assist them on their way? '

No!
Not at all.
That's hypocritical.

'We wanted our opponents to curb their spending.
Those habits must end.
We,
On the other hand...
We,
Will reign over any spending.
And make this an exclusive endeavor.
And that is why the people elected us.'

I see!

'No you wont!
And that's the key.
Spend, spend, spend wisely.
Without needless scrutiny.
That is our motto.'
