Politics

A Chapter by Dave Brown

❓❓❓

"

Their planet was fairly small and perfectly round. Neither the pull of their sun or moon seemed to have any effect.

The inhabitants were asexual, all exact copies of each other except for the head person who was about six inches taller.

They dressed the same, sounded the same and acted the same. They all talked at the same time all saying the same thing!

They were in fact, the same person divided into countless copies.

Their life cycle consisted of four continually ongoing stages; reproduction, growth, a period of endeavour which included all forms of achievement and then ‘judging’ which led again into reproduction.

The judging was done by the elders and was only necessary in regard to youth during the period of growth, who were inclined to occasionally be lax.

The Judge and Jury sat at a table with the head person in the center and four jurors on each side.

The accused were always guilty which saved an enormous amount of time.

But the inhabitants were not happy.

First one then another refused to say the same thing.

The balance was upset and chaos reigned.

War and pestilence became common place.

The Sun pulled the planet oblong.

It started drifting toward a black hole, then began to accelerate at an incredible pace.

Many inhabitants were pulled off into open space eventually drifting to Earth where they became politicians.

This is a very clever poem and many times rather than say the right or do the right thing they will all agree with each other and never admit fault.

This was a creative way of saying what politicians do

That is the truth
I hope not!!! Very clever poem; I' trying to guess, could these be the QAnon's or just plain Republicans, who all think alike, dress the same and think like they came from another planet???? Or could it be Trump's team who did the same thing only Trump is taller???? Great piece and I loved the ending!!!!
Best, B

Why not? Free speech my friend!
I often wondered why politicians are so strange. Now, I know: they are from another planet.
Thanks, Dave. But, be careful, they might not want their secret exposed. (Have you seen the movie, "They Live"?)

Your poem is very funny :)) Your mind is like a rambling rose. It grows in many directions.
I'll buy this....they all came from a Black Hole and someone should shoot them all into space so they can go back from where they came.

Politicians and hot air, yip they go together.
Global warming is handling us now, and it's definitely winning.

I liked the line" The accused were always guilty"... Very time saving and that phenomena they are carrying in their genes to judge this poor planet called earth when they landed here by chance. May be before their landing our earth was somewhat cooler.
.. Thank you for a good laugh
