My Gripe

Oh forget the hype
One thing that makes me growl
Is politicians

I wish I could wipe
The grins from their faces foul
As they prance about

And pick the fruit so ripe
To fill their own secret bowl
And all justified!

    I have read more than one on politicians from you and know that you are not blind to a hungry smile.
