The Politician

Pork chop cheeks and whiskey
Smiles, couldn't hear the screams. 
Or feel the clinched fist of anguish, 
Just gravy boats, reporters notes 
And passenger windows, a self-
Perpetuated pride an collective team 
Of ego, laughing in hysterical 
Deliverance of ignorance, playing 
Around oblivious, to disastrous 
Decisions, twenty plus years too late, 
National incompetence the scourge of 
Historical importance shattered a 
Nations livelihood millions of pieces 
Scattered in a dense foggy wood, a 
Gathering of like-minded fools, the 
Greatest education the finest meals, 
Exemplary in tradition of failure 
Perfect in self-service number one 
Next to none, excellent in vile 
Thoughts, master of demon guile 
And under every rock you lurk, 
Sociopathic and absurd, elevated by 
One’s will the autocratic style, how 
Does a pauper rise to noble feats?, by 
A system of tricks and treats a self 
Justification in heaps of linguistic 
Beats a democracy to those who 
Plunder the harvest reaps, not for 
All, or those who need, just those 
Who wash your feet, place great
Measures for promised privilege to 
Thrive turn by turn a circle peerage, 
And flashing the cleavage of 
Mockery, just showing off parading 
Aristocracy, an instrument of 
Control, a hammer to our freedom, 
A screw to our expression, an 
Square to our heart-felt intention a 
Drill to our completion, our 
Nightmare, the politician.
