The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Recall our politicians

Recall our politicians

by

James Bredin


The only thing that politicians fear is being recalled,
Slightest suggestion about this and they act appalled,
And they’re free until the next election to tax and spend,
Or find some meeting in the tropics to go and attend.

And pretend that they are doing government dealing,
And what they are doing could not be considered stealing,
They’ll increase spending and traveling while they can,
And until the next election, they don’t give a damn.

And you, dear docile voter, are helpless until then,
As they double their wages again and again,
As you sit helplessly wondering what you can do,
It’s called recall if we can ever have it pushed through.

While they claim they’ll address the fiscal imbalance,
Never mention their left wing socialist alliance,
And referendums too, they’ll make sure they are banned,
Don’t talk about it, mention it or even take a stand.

We have no control over politicians from hell,
Looking for the next photo op to say that they are swell,
We need referendums, recall and ombudsmen galore,
So they think about the people and they just can’t ignore.
