Repeat Offender

They will promise you the Moon and try to block the Sun
Will promise to put a bridge over troubled water, but the river is dry
Anything that you could ever want, but nothing ever comes of it
Maybe not all, but just about everyone
They just get re elected, never seem to die
Or maybe they have got it so good, they don"t want to quit

when the rich get richer, "Oh, it is because of those old Republicans"
When the economy is down who is at fault, "The Democrats"
After all the mud slinging, they go out and wine and dine each other
And who foots the bull, the poor old hard working Americans
Seems like the donkeys and elephants all wear the same hats
If one did not know better, kind of like a brother

Most are lawyers at first, then keep going from there
Making more laws that we do not really need, taking freedoms away
Demanding that we eat, what they won't even taste
Trying to keep God hidden in a dark place, so we will not have a prayer
But someday they will pay
Look around and think, who is responsible for all the waste

They need to remember, the voters that out them in office, can vote them out as well
We need to make it so it is not so profitable to be a politician
Of The Flag and of God, become a defender
Or we will all go through nine kinds of Hell
And above all, be proud if being an American
Take away all the temptations, so that they will not become a :Repeat Offender

    Danny, the politicians do forget whose interests they were elected to represent. I feel the tension in this poem and can really relate to your message. I won't be supporting any incumbants in the next election. The political machine needs to be fixed. Maybe we need more squeaky wheels. Awesome poem! Love, Carolyn

    great thoughts, things are messed up in this political soup. I think all politicians are crooks.
