Becoming a Politician

A man sits by the harbour

With a cap full of coins

He’s not sure how it happened

 

He was talking out loud in town

To passersby

Speaking strongly of the current political situation

Ruining Britain

And how we should solve these issues

He had fair points

Solid plans

But no one would listen

Walking right by without a glance

 

Someone told him to dance

While giving his speech

To liven things up a bit

And so he did, he had a jig

Whilst starting his speech over again

He looked like a fool, an idiot

He looked hilarious

People stopped and laughed, and listened

The money came flowing

The coins rolled in his cap that lay at his feet

They signed his petitions

In return for the man signing their shirts

They wanted his photograph

And he gave it all to them

In return for something

Worth a lot more

A signature

 

A False Speech

He took to the stage

All eyes followed him

All voices quiet

Ears poised for position

He readjusted the microphone to his height

And spoke his piece:

“All men are greedy and ugly. Every one of these men running for this local election only care for their own pocket. Not your livelihoods. I promise to bring about a new era where I put the people first, and not myself!”

The audience clapped

He took off the stage with a smile and a wave

To sit in the VIP seat reserved for him

The next man was ushered on

He readjusted the microphone to his height

And spoke his piece:

“This man was lying! He only cares about lining his own pockets. He’ll tell you anything to get votes! Vote for me and you will get nothing but honesty.”

The audience clapped

He took off the stage with a smile and a wave

To sit next to the other man

In the VIP section

Both sharing a laugh together

The next man was ushered on.

Biocentrism

I am the yellow moon

And the red sun

And the bright stars between that distance

The green earth

Down to the blue skies and white clouds

The colourless air

And the deep blue sea

Right deep down

To the core of the earth

I am

The musical notes

The pieces of art

And words on paper

I am science

The reason

and the logic

The Empathy

I am the bridges

And the skyscraper

I am the plane

That crashes into it

I am the terroist

That shoots innocents

I am a slave

I am made in China

I am the politician waging war

I am plague and disease

Infection and

rotting

I am death

I am sex

Alcohol

Drugs

I am a pair of eyes

I am a mind
