politricks as usual

they cheat they lie
they sometimes steal
people seem to think
this is no big deal.
that this is what
politicians do.
and we should just
accept this fact
as true.
the banality of the
jaded
mindset
the cynicism
of the unwise.
perhaps this was
always a part of
human history,
she sadly
surmised.

Nice poem. Liked it. For I too have had my fill, of all their misleading swill, those corrupt politicians keep it pouring, I long since found the whole charade quite boring, so I've turned off all the news, all good for a case of the blues, if you want to know the way out if this painful journey, just get me off this strapped up gourney, and over to the computer I shall try to take you to a place, where you too might see his face. :)

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
