When voting is useless and Politicians are idle.

Government Affairs

by Raffaelina Lowcock

Secularized statements
The profound knowledge many try so hard to ignore
As slowly the true facts of certain events
are clarified in our minds.

Suddenly we are aware of the discontent
for present situations,
The battering and the condemnation
of people, we cannot be too sure of... haunts us

Who did? Who didn't?
We are confused as to the meaning
or reasoning of all this.
Is this necessary?

In order to arrive at the true facts
We must summarize the maxims
Prevail on probing the priorities
Be aware of the ingeniousness of politicians

As context after context is reported
and the picture is completed in our minds...
The fact of disloyalty among Agencies
disgusts us.

We see the fear it instills
in those behind the hidden truths
As they toss more lies
around the stricken bureaucracy.

So we the stippled people of this fickle world
Must suffer from the awareness of the unknown
While the triteness of our situation
with each other

Allows us to continue
along the path of life
Only, half harassed
by the mad confusion of it all.

There is quite a bit of partisanship currently in the U S Political world that is restraining the duties of Congress. This is not the Government for the people that is in the Constitution. This seems to be the Government for the Politicians.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
