... Politicians! Poem by Eyan Desir

... Politicians!

Rating: 3.9

Educated heads
Sitting in parliament
Or heads wanting power
The power to serve
And Govern human lives

Heads with great intellect
Songs for prosperity
Answers for poverty
Heads that claim honesty
Loyalty to our land

In times of elections
Watch a cunning smile
Hear intelligent lies
Many amazing words
Flow from articulate
Political tongues

Beautiful promises
Of a sweet tomorrow
Makes hearts fall as victims
To political bait
Many use these illusions
To invigorate minds
And to capture the prize

In the river of time
When they are elected
We finally see
The true Identity
Of the Politicians

Dear Desire, Thanks for sharing and unmasking the true faces of the politicians in a humourous way. The picture is almost same in most of the countries of Third World.Just before the election, I wrote 'Five Year Plan', 'Demise of Democracy' and 'Salutation'Please read them if time permits. Car or no car you get a jar of tens(10+++++++++++) from me. Thanks for sharing ----Rajkumar
