The Politician - Poem by B.J. Ayers

Vote for me, vote for me, that’s what they all say,
I’ll give you this, I’ll give you that, they shout to all,
Elect me as your candidate, with a smile on their face,
I will cut your taxes, I will even let you pray,

I’m better than him, I’m better than she,
I ‘ll make you feel good, about all things,
Then when you are asleep, I’ll do what I want,
I promise to do it all, it will be just for thee,

Just vote me in, I promise not to stay,
Just a term or two, that’s all I need,
I’ll make you proud, and then you can say,
What happened to freedom, what happened to my pay.

But don’t you fear, I’ll still be around,
Doing the job you voted me to do,
Keep casting those votes, for the name you know,
I have relatives, with the same name that’s renound.
