Political Puppet Show

Political Puppet Show

A Poem by Sirius King
"

inspired by the election coverage, and i approved this message :-)

"


Presidents aren’t born

But rather, they are built

Their strings are revealed

When the issues begin to tilt


Funny how candid they are

When they are just candidates

But when in office

That's when the matrix activates


That's when the strings get pulled

And the wires get crossed

The morals go out the window

And his message gets lost


 

They have ways

To shut people out

Who notice and point out

That his voice

Doesn’t really match his mouth…

 

And his words don't

Match his actions

While the other folks

Fall for the joke

They don’t even

Notice what happened...


An anticipated reaction


Either they are not interested

Or they are too busy taking sides

Or way too distracted to try

To follow the storyline

 

“The right and left- battle it out

Oh what a show!”

Though…

They’ve been doing this for years…

And have nothing to show?

 

They say that they will fight for us

But I’m not so certain

And no one ever acknowledges

The man behind the curtain

 

He is very mysterious

But obvious just the same

No one pays attention

This is essential to their game


Some people are awed by this facade

Others see straight through it

Refusing to applaud the fraud

Knowing it's not legit 


 Unless the audience stands up

Fed up with this pretending

The plot to this puppet show

Won’t have a happy ending…

 BE THE CHANGE

The men behind the curtain during the bush administraion was Carl Rove and the Neo conservatives. The Neocons are a very hawkish supply side economics group that if they had not been in power at the time the Occupation of Iraq never would have happened. Obama is more his own man but he's not progresive or agressive enough thoough he does face a hostile senete determined to run him out of office. Rommney? A gazzilionaire Mormon? F**k that! Obama's not the best President we've ever had but compared to Rommney he's Abraham Lincoln.

Very true and to the point...The puppeteers will always be hidden behind the curtain....I often look upon the presidential campaigning as Hollywood with teeth..Not much better in my country

Interesting dude. I'm not much for politics, and this is why. No matter what there's a group out there, and they fight for election. Our votes are only a show. Poloticians just tell us what we want to hear. They don't have broken promises more like lies. Their real promises are kept. Lol it's amazing how I feel like i'm being watched now XD

np thanks for writing
I agreed with you through ought the whole poem. It was a great read the problem is people this days do the same things over and over expecting a diffrent result and this happens a lot in politics which is why they piss me off so much, so many promises yet so many lies. Great poem i really enjoyed it. Good job!

very true!
Sometime hard to follow your own direction in leadership. Good to have own thoughts and know what right and wrong is. I like your thoughts. Election leave me empty and piss off. I don't care about their wealth and what color they are. I want to know what are you going to do to help fix our country? Thank you for sharing your thoughts in the excellent poem.

Wow. This is great! It flows easily. I totally agree with the message. I especially love the last stanza. Your 10th stanza, it should be it's (it is) instead of the possessive its.
I also love the picture. Where'd you get it?
