poem

POLITICS
© copyright November 9, 2004
Donna Wood

All I know of politics
Makes me tired, makes me sick.
I vote, on election day,
But it fills me with dismay.

There is really no clear choice:
Who cares if I raise my voice?
They're all liars, every one,
When the whole thing's said and done.

We elect a figurehead
While our soldiers' blood is shed.
Politicians without hearts
Lead us on in fits and starts.

Thank God, in this U. S. A.,
I'm still free to have my say.
So, I’m stating my position:
I do not like politicians!
