Politician Ways

Politicians are the most pretentious
 to emerge from the primordial mulch 
of creation.
They pretend to love, 
they pretend to care,
In the case of them doing any deal 
remotely benefiting constituents
 is on condition they profit in prestige, 
wealth and a seat, a boardroom chair.

They hug an old lady its a photo opp
They kiss a baby its a god damn video shot, 
Even though the homeless is festering, 
lacking in compassion, bolstering they bray,
But miss the point that businesses has 
reneged on paying a livable wage

The politicians are one piece of work, 
weird that they represent the rich and 
well to do, 
and to you, dem stuff dem chest with 
ashes while exiting poverty, 
they knew which way the wind blew

Well, money pour to the centre augmented 
by a guard of honor rough beast of men, 
though shroud now, don't be surprise when 
you find its the politicians.

    Weston Gregory, they pretend to care, yet they turn us against one another. I have written one called "across the border" stop by if you like. You have it going on here, I have photos with Larry Olivares and my children when he was running for city commissioner. We took the photos because he's an uncle and he wanted to look good. Aaron Peña a Texas State Representative, he's my daughters grandfather, he's not xool. LOL... Love LINDA
