Author Note
This poem is the result of personal frustration pertaining to the amount of nonsense we deal 
with every day. It makes no sense and neither does this. Anybody out there? 

politicians don't lie, 
promises a pigs eye, 
to do or try, 
we know why, 
mothers cry, 
life a lie, 
we never die 

the rich get poorer, 
the poor get richer, 
they call you mister, 
meet an alien visitor, 
better odds with a twister 

sale means craving 
taxing promotes saving, 
bathing then shaving, 
road workers paving, 
preachers raving, 
neighbors waving 

the economy is sound, 
taxes equal all around 
the President crowned, 
craters upside down mounds, 
job security, solid ground 

education improving, 
students deluding 
teachers intruding, 
nothing profound, 
archaic sound 

foolishness abound, 
unstable ground, 
wherever nonsense is found
