Political Poem

This is another bleedover from my poetry site. Couldn’t pass it up.

Political Haiku

A politician’s
Most fundamental question,
What’s in it for me?

The Way of Things

The new people in the congress,
Intent upon disruption,
Soon will be slowing down
To the speed of mass corruption.

An honest politician
Is such a fleeting breath.
Seldom do we catch it
Before it meets its death.

The people are important,
With their torches and their axes.
Without their marching hordes,
Where would we get our taxes?
