Oh, how the mighty have fallen
Like the descending leaves of Autumn
Pointless to nurture this self-importance
And the blind denial of inadvertence
With integrity always in question
To blow one’s own trumpet an obsession
No inventory of achievements
And pathetic service deferments
Your adversaries looking for peace
Wishing boastful outbursts would cease
Calling you out on your phony claims
Watching your fake news go up in flames

I have always had a healthy interest in politics. However, now, it has polarized this country. Broken up marriages and partnership and drawn a line in the sand. it is a sad state of affairs 😢
I have detested politics since I was young and my own parents helped at such campaigns and functions taking time away from the family.
Some politicians more than others need to relearn how to do politics and it isn’t by playing ‘birdie’. To me that just shows ignorance of what is important.
Bravo, My Dear!!
Thanks Chuck!! 🙂
He has no shame
He has no name
Life for him is a game
Life for him is someone else’s blame
He will not be remembered
He will not be a heavenly member
He’s full of money and greed
That’s the arrogance of his breed
Oh well done Ivor. I agree 😑
A quick angry piece
As was mine! It’s very easy under the circumstances 😞
I’ve added two more lines, maybe it’s good enough to post soon
Great! Can’t wait to see it 🙂👍
Haha, it’s only 6.00am here, I’ve just turned the heater on. Only 1’C at the moment outside. I’ll wait for my room to warm up a bit. Then I’ll get onto my computer soon
Yes, already tomorrow for you!
I’m posting now “A Lame Horse With On Name”
I’m hoping that the subject of your poem will, himself, go down in flames.
With this many lies he might self combust 🤣
