The Body Politic

The Body Politic

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

__The Body Politic__

 

If you’re not for the people

Then just what are you for

Do you hide behind steeples

Shaking hands you abhor

 

As our climate turns lethal

Do you hide behind doors

To bank on the upheaval

For your need to have more

 

So you don’t know you’re equal

In race color or form

Yet you smile so deceitful

Being that which you have scorned

 

You profess your ecclesial

And all others are torn

Yet you press your beliefs till

You make others conform

 

Think that females are feeble

And their judgment is poor

There’s no sex in cerebral

Just from where you were borne

the idea for some that our leader could be a woman is unspeakable...but they are afraid...to find out that a she could run this country in a much better fashion than a man...
women have been the backbone of this country since time began...they just don't get the credit they deserve.

i cant remember what im blaming all this crap on!
Well spoken Rob. There have been many good female leaders of many countries. Not sure the U.S. is ready for one yet though. All we ask, as one of the peons, is for someone to stand up and lead. That is sadly missing in our country at the moment, even with the "feminist" Prime Minister.

P.S.
Great photo.
