monarchy or not
political intrigue rules
foul throne games prevail

Newt the hypocrite
Political Senryu II writing prompt entry
Write a Political Senryu 5-7-5
I don't think there are many "thrown" elections or royal opportunities, but they are not without example. "Throne games" is also a play on the current television series "Game of Thrones." Veteran politician Newt Gingrich thought he had a strong chance to become president, despite his personal and political baggage. Although unlikely, he could still reappear in a high-level governmental position. A "grinch" is typically somebody who ruins enjoyment. The newt also reminds me of the salamander, which appears to shift color--another example of gamesmanship!Pays one point and 2 member cents.
