POLITICS

 

Politics

 

Welcome to our regular, comical, show

We’ll entertain you, we’re seasonal pro’s

Fasten your seat belts, and be sure to sit tight

You’re in for the ride of your life, a suspect flight!!

 

We are skilled masters, in what we say

Always promising an alluring, better, way

Our brighter pledges, is what wins the vote

But when in power, our promises barely float

 

Hence, we’ll make excuses, not taking blame

We’re the coalition, you’ve missed the oppositions train

Try not to worry, do relieve yourself from stress

We have four years to untangle, this political mess

 

In parliament each day, the first round is lobbied

Shouting one another’s policies, vastly copied

Mr Speaker today we’ll take your permission

To introduce this Bill with fervent concession

 

Taxation, employment, welfare and corporate privatisations

Global warming, peace, tariffs and legalizations

Quarrels to and fro with justifying explanations

Accountability pending public humiliation

 

Values and morals exempt from the arena

Power and control is what politics subpoena

A platform of influence is what we crave

The peoples rights are powerless unable to pave

 

Politics ought to oblige in bearing fruit

To empower the public to a prosperous pursuit

Empty words and promises, we need not necessitate

If you represent the people, produce actions that generate
