Trading in the world of pontificating,
Perched high upon erroneous promises.
Elevated above the truth of the matter,
Lies blind their colourful perspectives.
Free will feels the constant price of choice,
Fearsome to behold improbities of despots.
Rhetoric polished and repackaged as before,
Empty promises litter whole worlds of politics.
Wrongs make human rights disperse and fragment,
Erased and eradicated save for irksome regimes.
Injustices exacerbated with each administration.
Timid do-gooders eventually show their intent,
Charades and chicanery played party wide.
Underdogs bundled into early graves or history,
Politicians uniformly besmirch notions of humanity.
