Politics seems all about posturing these days. It's no wonder people get angry.
Politics is no longer a charming word!! The good governance of a country could be through debates and conflicts (included)but today it is now reduced to just a dirty word!!
Keep the faith! Politics seems a succession of disappointments.
Appreciate the poetic close. And I still hope for sense,being heard and moving forward. I can't imagine giving up and the speaker does not impress me that he has lost all hope either.
Something about the association of politics and gutters works for me.
