Politicians from Hell
Why on earth should we attract politicians all the way from hell?
Tax-and-spend and travel bureaucrats as far as we can tell,
Pompous pushy pirates except for maybe one or two,
I canít remember who they are and I bet, neither can you.
And to hell with logic and no need for normal common sense,
Tell the crowd we have democracy and theyíll be less tense,
Mould their opinions with a special hidden TV agenda,
Increase the fear factor with pompous propaganda.
Politically biased left-wing media helps their cause,
Mischievous misinformation and worse, just because,
Polygamy coming our way and abortion already here,
Four or more wives and lots of dead babies without fear.
These politically correct politicians who just donít care,
Pump out pompous platitudes about their agenda, so beware,
Never mention single welfare mothers or ghetto dudes,
And for a vote, theyíll sell their souls, so donít you dare intrude?
Should we pull out of the Afghanistan peacekeeping war soon?
Could it be a referendum question and what an opportune?
Because long ago I lost track of what this war is all about,
Though politically correct politicians know, no doubt.
