Robber with consent

He arrives with pockets full of promises

 His ammunitions more deadly than a gun

 tongue dripping with vague promises  

He resurfaces every four years with renewed

deceit and plumb cheeks glorifying his robbery

He has substituted the gun with a three piece suit   

And we gladly place our consent on paper allowing

The politician to take it all while we look on helplessly

  1. Shame on me for not reading this on the 23rd of December that you published it. Even a politician would enjoy this. I call it a sucka-punch poem.

I'd love to hear from you, leave a comment here
