Today - Poem by Tex T Sarnie

What's happening to our country,
don't we learn from bygone days?
We once blindly followed religion
who used God to manipulate our ways.

Deception and corruption are the key words
they've been used since day one.
As people we follow the so called good shepherds,
who charm and cheat everyone.

Can we honestly believe what we are told,
are politicians really so gullible and half soaked?
Or do they have something personal to gain
as an incentive not to rock the boat?

At election time they make us promises,
which are forgotten when they get in.
Laws ought to be passed to jail political liars,
but any such proposal would be a sin.

So whichever way we look at our situation,
as a nation we are well and truly f***ked.
Politicians will forever spend our money unwisely
on economic failures and cover ups.
