Understanding the political game - A poem

Image
  Politics by JBF I didn’t do anything remotely wrong Politicians before me did the same. We help some people and we help ourselves. That is the name of the game that you blame. If you want to play, you play by the rules These special rules you will not learn in school They come from initiative and cunning. To ignore these rules you play the fool. Life in this place is a roller coaster A hard grind, just to eat a decent food Chances to thrive are few and far between Grabbing the ones that come improves our mood. So do not begrudge us our good fortune! We choose to put our lives out on the line. We’re courageous leaders on a mission To support those who toe the party line. I didn’t do anything remotely wrong. I’m just here carrying on the tradition. I give with one hand, I take with the other Win-win, a necessary condition.

When? W atch you sidling from the glare of the headlights! Hewn down by worries Engrossed by foul fears Newly imprisoned. Wasting Hoping Enduring Numb. Wishing on yesterday Holding on to today Eyeing tomorrow Neutering the now. Wrench free! Hasten away! Embrace the light! Nab the wind! Now!
