Power Usurped.

House of Deception.

by WintyBoy

In the house of nodding heads,
kiss my arse, and yes, yes men,
the speaker bellows order please,
at a rowdy rabble of gaggling geese.

Yack, yack, yack, and on it goes,
in a language surely no one knows.
Fat bellied asses sitting in rows,
while a baggy eyed--blue nose has a doze.

Wagging tongues, laughing jeers,
finger pointing, cynical sneers.
Sarcastic smiles from frumpy dears,
it's more of a pantomime it appears.

Bleating sheep, quoting crap,
blah-blah this, and blah-blah that;
confrontational tit for tat,
smirking like a Cheshire-cat.

Back-slapping sycophants prevaricate,
no problems solved, there's no debate.
Statistical clap-trap is the trait,
and as for Democracy----it can wait.


Does the government govern the money-men,
or do the money-men rule the government ?
Who in fact holds power in this-- us and them,
so called Democracy?
