Politics and Politicians

 

taxes debated,

while the poor protected,

by the sympathetic wealthy,

who, never being poor themselves,

see  poetry and meaning,

in the suffering of others,

 

the heartless rich,

drink champagne,

and buy stocks,

betting across the future,

 

while much of the nation,

only wants the rich,

and the politicians,

to get the fuck out of the way,

as survival is attempted.

Change

 

the climate is changing,

as is truth,

humanity the cause,

man destructive,

yet full of goodness,

full of flaws,

attempting to understand,

and explain,

why life evolves,

and the concept of change.
