Some cynicism of US politics surfaced in this poetical rant:
Ballad Of The Golden Rings In Their Snoots
(AKA The Golden Fleece)
It does not take minds adroit or astute:
Mankind hastens in blind velocity.
Moral illness—leaves ethics destitute.
On Capitol Hill, they wink and salute;
Campaign vows add up to vacuity.
Lobbyists pimp for more to prostitute.
Reason and ethics fall in disrepute;
Scandals rise from backroom vicinity.
Men fondle, quickly deny and dispute.
Thousands of pages confuse and confute;
Tax laws bamboozle in verbosity.
Daily “Breaking News”—another lawsuit.
The spirit of law has become dilute;
Lawyers weasel with virtuosity.
CEO’s sail in golden parachutes.
Values have eroded and are dissolute.
Dear God, brace me in Your veracity—
Enable me to remain resolute:
Fill me with heart and power to transmute.
