Political Gangsters - Poem by louis rams

The political gangster is the one who uses the political
Powers of their office to intimidatethe others to do
What they say and do whatever they deem necessary to
eliminate all rivalry.
It matters not if innocent people get hurt in the process
As long as they can control others.
We now live in a political ground where the UNITED STATES
Has been turned around,
No longer are we free, for we live under political hypocrisy.
Politicians are misinterpreting the laws
and leading us into another civil war.
When we no longer speak and close our lips
we allow this Country to be ruled by Dictatorship.
What would our forefathers say - if they was to see how
This country is being run today?
When has any politician in this country looked to another
Country to help them win an election, and in their mind
They are perfection.
It reminds me of the games we used to play " follow the leader "
And " Simon says " - but this is" reality" and not the way life
should be.
We grew up from girls and boys and put away our children toys.
No longer can a guilty person be tried, because evidence and testimony
They will tend to hide.
This is my belief and you do not have to agree, but what the
future holds we will see.
