Washington D.C…….”Home of the Big Crazy”

At “The Big Crazy”…or “Washington D.C.”…So…as the story goes…

Politicians come from miles around to discuss things …Because they’re so smart…as everyone knows.

At “The Big Crazy”…We show up ready to pay…with cash in hand…

Given so many promises with a murky path before us…by the quote: “Leader of the Land”.

At “The Big Crazy”…Politicians make their promises…They never change…

Making decisions for the Good of the People…only each decision is so strange.

Make sure and give them every cent you have…What can we do about it…

They know more about what we need…then you and I…Don’t you ever doubt it.

“The Big Crazy”…takes a lot of money to run…so don’t you complain…

Get back to work…and earn your keep…you can stand the strain.

Go back to work…Stay Quiet…and just pay more than your fair share…

The whole World needs to be fixed…and needs a whole lot of our tender lovin’ care.

Help feed “The Big Crazy”…We need more money for the programs we have for you…

Help pay “The Big Crazy”…Get to work…’Cause there’s lots of things they need to do.

A Decree has now been mandated to us…from what was once Free…

Get ready to see this World…Become all that our crazy leaders want it to be.

At “The Big Crazy”…We stand on the verge of that which Once was Grand…

Pay all you have to “The Big Crazy”…Thus says…the “Leader of the Land”.

Crazy place…Run by the insane…We must thank them for all they’ve done…

Great and Wise and Noble Lordships…Indeed…Each One… a Superior One.

Without you we are a hopeless wreck…Thank God you’re here to make more laws…

I’m merely a simpleton before you…You are far Greater…(if we don’t publicize all your flaws !)

“The Big Crazy”…or so the Story went…was out of control…in it’s latter days…

“The Big Crazy”…Faded away in time…’Cause of Leaders that were lost in all of the “The Big Crazy” ways.

I’ve got One Simple Question…from a simple “Manly Poetry Man”…

Why did you shake so many peoples hands…to become the “Leader of the Land” ?

Why did you travel…so many miles…just to debate and proclaim your name…?

Why did you spend so much money…just so you could win a campaign ?

Did you think it would be easy…to Address the World from the White House lawn…

Did you think we would be following you blindly…when your Speeches make us yawn?

What is it that you are doing there…Have you stopped to ask yourself why ?

Have you considered…What has come before…How many Soldiers that had to die.

“The Big Crazy” lives on now…in some old Children’s Nursery Fables…

Back from the Stone Age we have come…Now…that we can finally put food back on our tables.

We have learned a lot from leaving our lives in the Career Politicians hands…

People…that were more interested in themselves…then governing our lands.

We learned a lot about who it is…that we can really trust…

We learned that Politicians…if given the opportunity…will walk all over us!

So…Gather ‘Round and Listen to the Tale…of this Once Great and Mighty Nation…

And learn how the “The Big Crazy” caused our Extinction…Gradually…through every Proclamation.

“Big Crazy”…where have you disappeared to now…with the newness of time…?

 

Everything you put in place is gone now; You had your chance…so now…we’re leaving you behind.

 

You may have misspoke…or perhaps you have another incredible excuse…

 

But you went and messed everything up real bad…so what excuse can you really use?

 

“The Big Crazy” has messed up things so bad …they may have to find a new place on the Map…

 

Because…if you don’t stand for something…eventually you fall from any ol’ unforeseen mishap.

 

But maybe…I speak too boldly…or perhaps…maybe…not enough…

 

Certainly…”The Big Crazy” changed…because folks got tired of the repetitive…same ol’ stuff.

The End. Commentary Follows:

PERHAPS…I may speak too boldly with some of my Political Ramblings….on this Poem? (or maybe not bold enough?)

I won’t get into all the “Big Crazy” things that are going on…because I don’t need too…they are ABSOLUTELY…being brought into the Spotlight on their own.

HHHMMMM…If you can’t laugh…to some degree…at the Politics of this Nation…or if a few words hit home with you…then that doesn’t mean that the writing itself has to take a back seat. In fact…it is a good thing to have your own little “safe” thoughts…that are nice and secure…within your own little world…challenged!

This U.S. of A. country is in a spiral dive. Someone…Somehow…needs to grab the controls and pull-up! That doesn’t mean that We aren’t still a Great and Mighty Nation…or that We all can’t get along. Or, that We can not come up with some solutions. Especially…on our Own…Out of the hands of the Politicians…(Who have their hands in everything).

However…that would take People getting along and truly trying to do what is best for the Nation. And…standing on many of the things that have gotten us…this far along…through our History.

All this I write may make me out to be some kind of Philosopher-type or Preaching-type of Poet. When…in actuality…I’m just writing it down as I see it.

This Poem is called: “The Big Crazy”.

You’ve heard of the “Big Easy”? Well…Washington D.C.’s nick-name should be: “The Big Crazy”!

“Wow…this guy got rhymes!”  Had to “Share” this one because…Well…He says a lot about the “Crazy”…plainly.

The Views mentioned in this Poem are done for entertaining purposes…mainly…no matter how close to the Truth they may appear.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this poem. I shook my head in agreement then is distaste towards some of those crazy D.C. people’s actions and then felt like I had a friend that understood. Great poem. Jamie
