Deception Perception

by phil nelson

Getting To The Bottom Of It Contest Winner 
You should be aware
that we know you're a sham!
You say that you care,
but you don't give a damn!
You are not here to serve
anyone but your self.
You've come for the glory
and personal wealth!
You vote with the party
and not with your mind;
you leave truth, and honor,
and fair play behind.
You spend half your time just
to get re-elected,
take undeserved credit,
with all blame deflected!
If you truly believed
your religious view,
then you wouldn't in faith
ever darken a pew!
Instead you pretend to
be holier than thou;
yet you lie as you please
and break every vow!
You deceive the masses
with promises bold,
but the honest truth is,
you do what you're told.
You're only a puppet,
that dances and sings,
to tunes of your masters,
who're pulling your strings!

Writing Prompt
Politicians' speeches or comments often are not accurate reflections of what is on their minds.
Exemplify that observation in fewer than 200 words.
