The Politician

You drive a flash

Mercedes-Benz

and you love the

message that it sends.

“Look at me

and all I have achieved”

you couldn’t care less

for those you aggrieved.

It’s not your fault

they didn’t take

their opportunity

when you decided

to sell out

their community.

Knocking down homes

in the name of progress

while lining

your pockets in the process.

There is not

a hare-brained scheme

you would not consider.

That’s the job

of the politician,

selling out to

the highest bidder.
