I can tell this is political and I am not sure what has happened here but it sounds like this person has difficulty in making decisions and is one of those people who sits on the fence and is indecisive, we have many politicians like this in the Uk too, love Dolly x

    This was definitely written for an American audience. Our congress is a confusing mess. Like my poem, perhaps.

"First Class Fools" by J P Geo makes edgy fun of the parade of palm-greasing jackals who form the membership of our legislative houses. What Churchhill didn't say was that democracy is necessarily a dance of geckos in tuxes who ferociously comb their districts for edible goods. I'd like to concur with the author's confidence that a female champion will turn all the male geckos into fading memories; however, I think that the System as elaborated will ulltimately make that valiant she into another squabbling duck whose quack must be loud enough to perk up the ears of drowsy stockbrokers. The directness of this excellent poem is also its weakness. The poet herself, in her notes, calls it a rant, and as such it is effective, but not as effective as it would be if it used some sharp harpoons of irony and sarcasm to impale the offending lizards.

I especially like your line, "More like of the party, by the PAC, for myself." This is how I see many in our congress today. I also agree that Judge Jackson is one of the most qualified individuals to sit on the court. HYour rant is nicely done.

This is well done. A scream for justice. The utter nonsense of our congressmen and women make you want to blow your stack. I felt the anguish in this piece. Thank you for sharing

This work has reached the exceptional level

Yes, I agree with every platitude and every snide comment ranted away at the congressional fools. The sarcasm is thick but it has to be to tell it like it is! The hypocrisy and accountability of our senators and representatives are unrelenting in their advocacy for the so-called truth. Every time they speak they breathe lies and falseness.
I have found that sometimes the only federal or state employees that work are the middlemen or women as the case may be.
They at times work for the little people who elected them in the first place. But these are rare cases for the most part the same hypocrisy goes on from top to bottom.
Thanks for socking to them! They truly needed to hear how we feel!
Jesse

I agree with this poem one-hundred- percent. Our government is the joke of the world. All we have is a high-paid bunch of idiots in the house and senate. Just think, we are the ones that pay these jokers. Good rant.
