The Same - Poem by Francis Duggan

Just the same newsmakers and the same old voices we hear on the radio news every day
And little new they seem to tell us and over and over the same things they say
Why do we give power to such ordinary people we give them big egos how silly are we
The same boring voices the same boring people their sameness does all seem so boring to me.

The same boring arrogant flawed politicians they mirror our ordinariness it would seem
They live for the power and they live for the glory and they live for the sheer love of their own esteem,
The Judas sheep leads the flock up the slaughter ramp to be slaughtered our leaders no different to the Judas sheep
They deceive us and lead us on and them we follow if our votes prove our values our values come cheap.

On the radio news the same boring voices their sameness is boring as boring can be
Just like a bad smell they cannot be got rid of their voices on the radio their faces on the t v
Their repetitive sameness seems so very boring and far too much of them we do hear of and see
We do need the freshness of feminine beauty a woman of wisdom a beautiful she.
