The world is spinning out of control.
While greedy politicians stand in the light, basking in the glow,
The masses struggle, night and day.
Working their lives away,
No time for their children, nor their spouse.
No time for joy,or frivolous play.
Afraid to slow down, for even a moment,as they might lose the car and the house.
I hear (Certain Folks) say
That “ things are so much better”
Better for who?
For the handful of elite , old
Bastards such as you?
Things shouldn’t be like this.
While struggling to maintain,
It’s life’s most important moments that are missed.
Shame on those who hoard life’s treasures,
Greedy old men who rob us of life’s pleasures!
I truly hope there is a heaven above,
A burning hell below the ground.
We, the people, the masses.
Will be smiling and waving at you, as we happily look down!

    Two things:
    How do you know when a politician is lying? Their lips move!

    Hell has no more room - it is too full of politicians.

    Good strong write.

      I love your comments!
      I felt a need to vent tonight. LOL

      • Goldfinch60

        Venting can be good for the soul.

        Oh boy does this resonate. I don't know how they sleep at night. And why do the good die and politicians never do..... And it is so simple in some countries (for instance Norway - listed as one of the happiest countries in the world) - where everything is about how to make the people happy. The US is in sad sad shape........

          I can't spend too much time looking at their world - it makes me sick.

          • Lorna

            I know I know......... I'm trying to hold on to hope for the elections this year - and remembering that whatever creeps were ever in power (Hitler, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Mao and on and on)..... always disappeared eventually...
