Political Animals - Poem by RIC BASTASA

You're a newcomer
and so you want to impress
that changes are imminent
and that i should know
that you are the best person
to do the job
and i must then support you

you babble on the
misdeeds of those who
are sitting there
and you must oust them
so you can
do much better

i am tired to all

i have put mr. x and i have
ousted mr. y

and after years
one has become worse than
the other

there must be wrong with
the system
which can change x
very much like
y, and y
has become another
bitter x

ahhh, human nature
who can ever trust one?
