Things we should know but keep forgetting

Politicians

Do We Have to Love Them?

Don’t you have to love
Politicians? Because they
Always know what’s best

Beware when you hear
A politician who mocks
Someone checking facts

Attack and attack
After all the best defense
Might be offensive

Which is more complex
The clear one or the murky
Or are they the same

Politicians must
Win your vote to reach their goal
Truth is optional

They’ll disappoint you
No one can promise that much
And come through, can they?

Problems abound, so
Our leaders work together …
Yea, like that’ll happen
