Stale Smoke & Broken Mirrors

Stale Smoke & Broken Mirrors

A Poem by Phill Oz O'fee
"

What a mess...

"

Stale Smoke & Broken Mirrors


To wreck a sane system

With counterfeit tears

Political prognosticators

Start to jeer and sneer

Propagating dust fusty

Dark atmosphere of fear


Viciously venom vaping

Thick clouds of deception

They try to convince us

Theirs is a true perception

Nearly as comparable to

An immaculate conception


But the whole scene today

Makes me so apprehensive

With self-opinionated drivel

In such unvarying offensive

Puts me securely positioned

On an unremitting defensive

This is the EXACT REASON why I stopped satellite TV a few months back, not anticipating the grizzly idea of spending upcoming months fomenting over the cluster f**k known as 2020 prez election in the USA. This might be the very best political phrasing I've seen in recent years: "Viciously venom vaping" . . . the combination of your msg & wordplay is damn-near orgasmic to me, my dear! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

i totally agree with this, Phill...
only negatives are presented anymore during election times...scare us into voting for you...tell us what the other candidate is going to ruin...scare us into voting for you...
fear rules...it is King.

Dear Phil, this for me sums up the awful and disgraceful shenanigans going on in Parliament this week. Democracy is fighting for its life. Too many people in politics for their own gain, they have forgotten they were elected by the people to do a job. A clever and truthful write. I am sure there are other meanings but at the moment I have a one track mind. All good wishes.

Chris

I agree entirely. The kids could teach this shower a lesson or two :))
