Hands Outstretched Across Aisle Hallowed

Hands outstretched across Aisle hallowed

Feigning sincerity and honest concern

Smiles and handshakes, there meaning shallow

Political mutiny from stem to stern

~

Spoils for the taking a populace held hostage

Bends to their whim and their will

With head in the sand like proverbial ostrich

They cater to every tyrant and shill

~

Too blind to notice or choosing not to see

Middle panders fringe left and then right

With no sense of reason what will be will be

Too beat down to put up a fight

~

When self-interest takes over who holds the bag

Its the poor, elderly and non-essential

Defined by the very people who brag

That their views are the most consequential

~

Left with a government who has shuttered their doors

We The People have nowhere to turn

Being held at the mercy of liars and whores

May their pinstripes and wingtips catch fire and burn

~

Honestly looking upon the tragedy we face

On whom does the fault truly lie

Yes, on the rodents that inhabit this place

But also on the uninformed, uninvolved, you and I

~

So when next we sit down and complain of our state

Look inside to what you have done

For without participation, this inevitable fate

Will consume and never be undone

  1. I don’t even really care who’s in charge or what they pass anymore, just get something ruddy bloody done -_- Compromise is (part of) the foundation of democracy.

    There’s no enemy to vanquish, Congressmen/women. Just problems to solve. SOLVE ‘EM.

    • I agree with you, everyone in Washington is to blame, I don’t care who they are and the bottom line is that they just need to fix this problem. Unfortunately though, the art of diplomacy and compromise seems to have been lost on them.
