Representing Their Needs - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

This hour...
It is proclaimed,
Government is wanted,
Out of their lives!

The previous hour...
It had been exclaimed,
The government is not doing enough...
To correct the downslide experienced,
In their lives.

And as this hour comes to a close...
They have decided,
Those in government representing their needs...
Are not listening effectively.
And have chosen to replace those elected to lead.
