A POEM about corrupt leaders.
When they read their manifesto
It always sounds like presto
Suddenly they lose the tempo
We get the expo
Everyday we hear the same thing
But we never see a damn thing
They say they’ll manage the situation
We say enough of carnage continuation
They say there is no gain for the pain
We say step aside and let another decide
They say they’ll get us on payday
We say we’ll get them on may day
In view of the foregoing,
What exactly are we doing?
Where exactly are we going?
So many projects are ongoing
But because they’re outgoing
They act like we’re echoing
We leave them to the all-knowing
