Scavengers

Corrupt politicians sleep
In each other's beds
While I hide my gold from them

    Don, you are so correct ! You probably have to lie on the sly quite a bit in politics :)

    Karen I love the satirical note to this. Sums it up beautifully good pen Linda

    Hi Karen, I've been away just over a week and back in I find this. I write into a local paper regularly where I have an opponant on political matters, it can be serious and sometimes funny, I think my last write has him on the ropes lol. Your poem is brilliant, right up my street and I think you speak for us all. thank you. Take care, Richard

    You certainly have a cynical view on our leaders. Plenty of them are corrupt but I believe that some are sincere. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Hi Matthew, As the first line says, I do have a cynical view of corrupt politicans. Thank you for reading and commenting :)

    HA! Very, very well stated! A massive truth here! My mattress has extra cash cushion. It's what helps me sleep better at night... ;)

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 5/22/2013 6:45:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Caleb, great idea to stuff our mattresses instead of turning it over to the greedy banks. I think I will bury my money in an empty can in the backyard ...:)

    A very good synthesis of corruption. In Italy there are politicians showing their gold and using it to improve their positions.

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 5/22/2013 6:44:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Mario, our politicians hide the gold they scavenge from us while they tout their honesty.... thank you for the critique. :)

    Don't let the tax man catch you*lol*. This is delightful in it's simplicity. Well done!

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 5/19/2013 9:06:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Ha ha, this one kind of just popped into my head although it's not a form of poetry I often choose. Dedicated to the taxman (IRS) and their scandalous behavior recently.

    well said Karen....our politicians are being bought by the highest bidder....thank you for your comments on my poem....hugs

    I must attempt to comment on the witty little gem. I'll try not to say something stupid...This is the blanket of truth woven with the loom of creativity.... Extremely well done....Jake

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 5/19/2013 2:16:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Jake, not too well hidden under the blanket of truth I hope. I am obviously 'fed up' with our system of government. Just had to let it out. Thank you for the generous comments :)
  1. Date: 5/19/2013 1:17:00 AM

    Well this was definitely different! Brutally honest I would say... I couldn't help but think of the gold diggers climbing their way up the corporate ladder... the fact you mentioned "gold" in the last line was a nice added touch. And Scavengers is a fitting title. Good senryu!

  1. Date: 5/19/2013 1:16:00 AM

    VERY good. we all need to be hiding our gold about now!!!

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 5/19/2013 2:14:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I agree. Thank you for the visit. I hope it stirs the pot ! Have a splendid day :)

  1. Date: 5/18/2013 1:13:00 PM

    oh my I love your senryu. Karen, i'm glad they aren't getting your gold. I'm glad I won't be making their bed in this life time or the next. It's bad enough we have to live in this corrupt world, were they want to take it all... xox~ Linda
