Looking Back & Around: Social Justice Poems
by Taylor Daniels
Corruption, lies and greed!
These days that’s all politicians breed.
They talk good, dress good and promise you that and this,
You hope they will help you but they actually don’t give a shit.
Democrat and Republican, they fight all the time,
But in all actuality, they’re committing the same crime.
When up for election, they often build up hope only for you to be disappointed,
Yet we are the reasons why they are appointed.
Why in the hell would people vote for the terminator!
Its politicians like him that fills me with anger.
Budget cuts, budget cuts that’s all he ever said,
He had people struggling out here, barely can afford bread.
But that’s a politician for you; they make a ton of money,
And forget about the people they’re supposed to serve.
From trying to win people’s votes, all the way to election,
All they want is money and to be reelected.
