Transparancy - Poem by James Bredin

Transparancy and accountability are never up front,
Appointees and politicians could be pulling a stunt,
To hide and avoid a scandal so push the button marked delete,
And nothing can be done because politicians are so elite.

And our appointed elite senators may be up there near god,
It looks like they can do anything they like and just get a nod,
Expenditures are not the same when aristocrats are involved,
So there may not be a need to have this whole scandal solved.

Or maybe, just maybe, it can all be swept under the rug,
And those friendly media moguls can just give a shrug,
And that’s all there is because there aint no more,
And as you leave the room; please close the door.
