Poetry: “On politics”

Allow me to vent for a bit in poetry form.

***~***~***~***

On politics

With wearied eyes I gaze at
The headlines without weight
They’re clouds of fluff and smokescreens
To block the cold hard facts
The chill that I feel growing
Between my fellow man
And politicians crooning to
The basest of the lot
Election times approaching
And deep inside I fear
For outcomes so depressing
I might not leave my bed
The populists and xenophobes
They claim the stage is theirs
I know I should oppose them
But I fear my strength is gone
