A World of Hypocrites

At the playground today
I saw the park manager smoking a cigar,
and after a few puffs she squashed it out on the pavement,
"You know the dumpster really ain't that far!"
I was about to yell but then realized
I was feeding the ducklings (of all possible things),
while my baby what left
neglected and weeping on the swings!

Good governance? With all those killings? And wish for potent alliance; Then be a serf of sham dealings. 10.13.16
