The politician's roll

If I were a fly on the wall.
I'd dwell in the government hall.
I'd observe all  their ravings and rants.
As they determine the fate of the ants.
As they squabble, and bicker, and fight.
Their conclusions, all born of pure spite.
They march straight along party lines.
While the futures of bugs are defined.
They care not of hardships they'll bring.
When the worker bee's forced to sting.
But they'll regret, from their conscience, they strayed.
As the dung beetle rolls them away.

    Oh, this is just how I see politicians, Joe! I notice you have been on and off the soup for a while and I'm glad I'm having an opportunity to read your work now. Thanks again for supporting my contest. Soup mail in a moment. Love, Carolyn

    Joe, you're so very clever! A masterful piece with cunning allegory. It's fun and funny, but still make others feel thoughtful. Great ending too, "As the dung beetle rolls them away". You're amazing, Joe! Best to you and yours! Love, Mikki

    You have decent descriptiveness and rhyming in this presentation. Just one item needs correction: In your seventh line, in lieu of "strait", you should have "straight". The word "strait" is a narrow waterway between two larger bodies of water.
