How I love those politicians

How I love those politicians



‘Every thing is wonderful’

So the politicians say

As with all their bloody money

They pass on by the way 

As the poor, they just want food to eat

And a shelter from the cold

They only want their simple needs

They don’t want no bloody gold.



Our old folk have to warm themselves

With a blanket or a shawl

They can’t afford no power

Their world is pretty cruel

In Sunny west Australia

Our poor just weep and cry

As the rich keep getting richer

The poor just wait to die



Politicians, they get fatter 

Look at our premier

He sticks his podgy chest out

And he makes my anger stir

As he looks after the people

Who have they, far too much

While the poor who live in squaller

His cold, heart does not touch



It seems that greed is all that counts

In this world I’m living in

We might need a revolution

If the poor shall ever win

We must rob the greedy of their power

Let those with wisdom rule

I hope that sometime in the future

We shall kick out every fool.



I do hope my hatred for politicians comes out in this one, for I surely do hate these 
fools….Peter

    Hi peter we share the same political views, these politicians are so full of greed & power at the expense of hard working citizens. Its so curupt & governed to take away rights. They do not care about voters , at all. I know the game, & no matter what political side your on its. The same 2 oponents in power!! Working together. You have to be awake & stay focused to whats goin on. Ty 4 great insight loved this poem:0) cherie

    Thanks Cherie for your comments. why do the rich rule the world when there are more poor people around? The wise will never rule without some kind of revolution. We are doomed to be ruled by cretins forever, I appreciate your comments my friend, it is nice that some folk see it as it is...peter

    Peter; I just loved your poem. I think that all politicians are the same . they are like sales men - they try to sell us something that we don't really want. I have a poem here that you might enjoy, ( About Corruption ) it's on page 2 - 8/26/2012. Thanks for sharing this one.... lucilla

    Thank you Ilene. It is always the rich who rule, so what do they know about the ordinary person who has to struggle to eat and live...Peter

    I especially love the ironical title and the line where you said " greed is all that seems to count, in this world i"m living in" returns my mind to the same pain and suffering the poor go through in my own country. Not bad.
