CONTRIBUTION · 21st October 2010
The bigger the ego the thicker the skin,
The bigger the lie the smoother the spin,
The more the disdain the wider the grin -
There's only one goal and that is to win.
The promises made they never will keep,
The artful denial of prejudice deep,
The wondrous reforms that are not, but they're cheap -
The goal is the same. Who cares if we weep?
When to serve all the people is to serve only one,
To distribute the wealth is something they shun,
And the cudgel of fear has only begun -
Democracy's lost. Self interest has won.
