Frank Bana

Shameless

His wars have failed
His soldiers die
No-one has ever
Seen him cry
His torture cells
Wiretaps exposed
His secret prisons
Will be closed
Approval ratings
In the lurch
He dare not show
His face in church
His self-invention
Crumbles, dies
His promises
Transparent lies
He smirks to shield
The criticism
Poisoning hope
With cynicism
Kids uninsured
So what the hell
The earth can go
That way as well
Scorned almost
Comprehensively
His pious screed
A travesty
His creed one of
Incompetence
Self-satisfied
With ignorance

Without respect
To justify
He shows no shame.
One question:
Why?
