''To Much Truth''

What are you thinking don't you know others read this,whatever it's supposed to be Truth or fiction if this gets back to the papers you think they want care because you call it poetry Did you even stop to think, Always like you taught me father did you consider not to drink Your constituents can smell you before you can even think to shake their hand Who do you think you are fooling,Oh this must be part of the campaign manager's plan So kiss their kids and you really believe they don't know about the wifes The audacity of you to judge us and this scripted out lifes These are real people real lives real truth,how much more do you think I can take How do you put on your boots,badge,gun look in the mirror knowing your a fake I have to be perfect on every hour of every minute of every second of every day in my life With your so called perfectly imperfect pretentious perpetuating plastic actress you call wife The perfect school The hand sewn shoes,for the love of anything would you really rather this than lose?Your already loosing yourself your kids ,their respect.From boy to Man I will put you in check,It's not fair to the others,your so power hungry you don't even see,it's not fair to us,you or me If I was pretending that much I would drink too,Oh wait,we do,It's eighty degrees and a long sleeve I wear,how have you not noticed,do you even care?You want to be the man,I'll give it to you-you damn well could be but not knowing what goes on under your own roof,That power blinded,you really can't see.I'm right here,we're right here,where the hell are you Father please!what more must I do! Boy how dare you speak to me in that tone and raise your voice. Do you really think I enjoy this,I have no choice All I want is the best for your brother and you.For God sakes you of all people know what we Must do You know the image that they must think I apologize''I'm sorry Sir''I'll grab my jacket and tie You just grab another drink (Polls close at ten) ''Inspired by the official who''Asked'' me to take down a poem about him''A writer writes ''sir''

The truth that lies behind the eyes get's buried in the heart. Human disguise just to be wise to play our separate part. Quite the wrenchful rant. Hope it was cathartic. Peace. :)
