Saccharine words …
Saccharine words drip from thin hard lips,
the supercilious grin that writhes beneath
a glint in the eye of arrogance,
and for all they say and never do,
why should we engage, sustain or
let them baby-kiss their dark intentions away?
I hate the guise, the circumstantial surprise,
when elected and we learn their true intentions;
for the campaign is just a show,
a laser-light misconstrued woe,
a slight of hand and smoke and mirrors glue,
to distract the facts in warehouse stacks, to lose.
Then what goes on behind closed doors
makes me shudder, no words to utter,
just the fear that all this corruption
is gathering like moss upon that proverbial stone;
and who will save the day,
when we are all sold, and the nation we once knew is gone.
World going to hell, I can sense that acrid smell,
all in the minds of arrogant leadership,
leaders of millions and questionable souls,
to arrest the contentions that death consoles,
and color and creed divide us all,
while those at the top count their coffers.
