Holes

Isn't our tolerance epic these days?

Crime is on the rise, morality decays

Equality has been such a positive trend!

We're equally lost on a slope without end

Our leaders have acted with proper accord.

They've led us to spend what we couldn't afford

The future we're fashioning looks rather sweet!

The fate of the meek is to feed the elite.


***Did you see how much taxpayers spent on donuts and coffee alone for the leeches in Washington? If that seems excessive just imagine what they spend elsewhere for things the rest of us have to pay for out of pocket, while telling the public to tighten their belts.***

I wish your poetry could be placed on big billboards for the masses contemplate. So consistently GOOD!

Bob,

There is a severe imbalance in the ways of the world these days, as your poem so rightly states.
The recent G8, held in Northern Ireland, has had at least £60 million pounds sterling, spent on security alone, for less than two days of business. What a waste of public monies...

Hey Janet, thanks, if only I could get a publisher feeling that way ;-)

Thanks Eileen, the waste is only made worse by their holier-than-thou attitude, I think they forget the word servant in public servant.
