In the Name of Politics

By: Jude Uchella
In the name of politics we come again
And on our bellies we lie.
The power, for now, is with you
But soon this fact will die.

Our word is seasoned with salt
The lie we guise in truth.
Listen more and be bought
But rest assured, we share no loot.

Our voice is one too many
The looming crowd work without pay.
We laugh at their folly
They appreciate every passing day.

We were there
Once upon a long time ago.
We took and still want to take
But our trick will otherwise show.

We all are guilty of this sin
And you are left with no choice.
Vote one and vote all
We all will share the spoils.

In the name of politics we come again
Offering the good lie.
Our slogan is the best we offer
Nothing good to remember us by.
