Our Representatives

Under the national treasures, they scramble for seats,
Selfishness solemnly from the wrinkled faces drips.
Do they speak our words or the words of Japanese Jeeps
When poverty and insecurity on our foreheads firmly sits?

    We really do have some problems in making elected officials understand the needs of the people. Well said, Joseph! Love, Carolyn
