Electioneering is the seeking
Of power in an office that
You promise voters you’re critiquing.
Since politics was first begat
You’ve promised them idealism;
To do away with cynicism;
That you’re the one, the real McCoy,
To represent the hoi polloi.
But once elected to the office,
And after time to settle in,
Just like a snake you shed your skin;
And sideways slithering you scoff us
Until you do it all again.
When will we learn to holler "WHEN?"
