Rent-Seeking Politician - Poem by Sari Mavi

The theories used bad politician is 
Always the same:  
Approaching businessman while playing the power
Then flows coffers of wealth;  
In accordance with the agreement

Cooperation authority and power is
Always the same pattern
Calculations were impressed that's it,
Actually dangerous
But the lust for riches make
Politicians and businessmen play
Dirty, even carelessly

Perceived time is so thin, they must
Immediately prepare financial energy
In order reelected as ongoing
Electoral contestants
Perpetuate power, not maintain
The trust of people

Meanwhile, businessman also pursue payment for
Solidify the position through lobbying power with
Promising a number of donations not be doubted 

Politics is always for the people,  
Not the politicians
But politics always passes through
The stomach politicians, first
Prior to rest up for the people
