Who Should The People Be Willing To Trust? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If a claim is made,
By one to be better at representing the good...
And the best of the people's interest,
And all that is shown and known,
Is one's abillity to collect the dividends of benefits.
Who should the people be willing to trust?
Someone who has clearly been publicly showing it?
Or someone who refuses to reveal,
The depth of their honesty...
And a suspicion to lust and feast discreetly?

    We trust our leaders for many reasons. First of everything they must be good looking with the genuine intention of smiling at people. Those who are trusted admired and elected by the people, will be easily thrown out, so the leaders should have the tactics of walking balance on the tied rope. Once they start walking, either they reach the destination and get down gracefully or dropped on their own misdeeds or pushed down by people, which is very simple. Nice poem! (Report) Reply
