Councillors, what do they know?

They get elected by local people

To improve the local environment,

But what do they do?

They just sit around a table discussing problems,

But end up doing nothing,

“We cannot do that because…”.

That reason could be real

But many times they just can’t be bothered.

They have the privilege of being councillors,

That title makes it seem they are important,

But what do they do,

What do they do for us?

That is the question,

The question that everyone asks.

    Who to believe? One group slags off another in newsletters, etc. we only seem to hear from them mainly before Election times.
    Bit like some churches. We might only her from them when they need our dough (money). But Salvation Army, etc are good, I feel.

    It is embarrassingly shocking, that via such stale political hustling, these elected suits still think they have the right to dictate and sell a future to us.

    They haven't done their job in a long, long, time, both locally and nationally, and I think that their validity has run dry.

    I hope the questions you've asked in this poem can be answered soon Andy.

    Bravo, and I hope that all is well.

      Thank you Ben, yes you are right.

      I am fine, how about you?

        You're very welcome Andy, glad that we're on the same wavelength, and I'm fine, thanks for asking.

        And the beat goes on.
        Good write, Andy.
