Reception Followed By Deception - Poem by John A'Hern
Reception, followed by deception,
Words of comfort used, then correction.
Promises made, broken in reflection,
Preaching, not speaking, used when correction.
Head for thesaurus for true meaning,
Younger voters, the I want generation,
Their visions are clouded
When it comes to looking at the future.
Their time is now, bounding forward,
Waiting is not in their game.
Eloquent mild-mannered promises flow,
Off to the voting booths they go.
Tick the box, decision made,
Anger when their choices fade,
Protest at the voter's choices,
Blame the oldies, cries are heard.
Times have changed from previous decades,
Woman and Man did not change preferences,
Parents choices passed through the ages,
Never a doubt, never a question.
What has changed with younger generation?
Are they thinkers? or lost in translation.
Time passes on, government gathers,
They seem to be lost, decisions shattered.
Old fashioned ways still ruling thinking,
The younger generation know they are fooling.
Read or watch media reviews,
Lies or truth who decides the making?
Friends now argue, losing control,
Government lost in way forward thinking
Discussing terms, unsure of the way,
Meanwhile, friends become enemies.
