Political stagnation.
What is that stench in the air?
There is a remnant of the evil
that exist in Pandora's box,
lurking in Washington. the air
is filled with the sent death leaves
in the oldest of graveyards.

Our representatives have
forgotten who gave them the
right to speak for us in DC. .
Senators and Congressmen alike
no longer remember the promises
made to gain our confidence.

Empty was their resolve. We the
people were only a convenient
vehicle to gain power in our name.
Shame on them! Politics goes on
day and night an endless stream of
nonsense.

Lie after lie roll effortlessly off the
tongues of those who profess
honesty and uprightness. Our votes
were stolen with a lack of candor
that has been covered with what
they thought we wanted to hear.

Now safely in office; our officials
are pushing their own agendas.
They know our memories are short
and they are happy in their element.
The stinky, nasty, swamp is just
right for creatures such as they.
