Politics as Usual

I know I should NEVER watch the news or read the paper. When I do, this is what happens!

They think I believe
their outrageous bullshit.
They think I’m na├»ve, or
some silly optimist.
What choice did we have?
Professional geezer
with “rogue” idiot in tow
Or TV preacher, hawking snake oil
to the gullible masses.
A chorus of yammering,
what they think can be sold,
“Just keep the rube’s pacified.”
as they play three card monte,
odds stacked toward their house.
Am I the only wanting
to scrap the whole damn shebang
and start over completely?

  1. I don't know as I want to scrap everything and start over, but I understand those who do.
