Politicked off

{a pity party} 

 

..

There’s no debating:
just a bunch of persuading,
degrading
berating
lie-trading
evading
and unbraiding of truth.

They’re casting stones
from golden thrones
and I just find it all too
absurd.

I’ll be casting my
cares on Him, instead.

And voting
for the
third.

  3. There is a tick in polytick… bloodsuckers… though I know there is a candidate that might send the world to war… I fear what would happen.

    I love this. Especially the Polly(anna) in the title. 🙂 I vote for her, for sure!

    You’re such a liar. You don’t throw pity parties; you throw pithy parties. Which is why I will always come to your shin-digs. 🙂

  5. Don’t be discouraged. We can change the system. We can ensure that those elected are responsive to us. We are trying to start this discussion. You can find us at unriggingamerica on wordpress and facebook. Yours would be a valuable voice. Please join us. We need you.

    Such a powerful poem! I love it!

  7. Love the poem man, I refuse to vote for either major party candidate. I’d like to believe if enough people get pissed off and vote third party or write in candidates, the two major parties will have to change, and/or a third party can actually rise to become a player in the game.
