Down with Politics Wordle 148


Political parties
court our votes yet fail to see
that what is needed
is a framework of support
to keep safe those brave souls
whose wages are too small
or whose health is not robust,
supported by the rest of us
who pay our taxes, as we must,
to make society equal and just.

Politicians use their tricks
to line their pockets.
Corrupted by greed
and the virus
of self-aggrandisement,
plans for a better world
are put on hold,
so nothing useful is done.
Guy Fawkes had the right idea –
pity he was stopped.

  1. You took those words right where I would have taken them, Viv. Dang. I loathe politics.

    There certainly aren’t enough Guy Fawkes in the world to keep governments honest. Am I that old as to remember more honest politicians or was I naive then?

    Oh, you are feisty lately Viv…and with good results… I love this! The last line’s brilliant…


  4. Pamela says:

    Excellent political rant, Viv. You put the words to good use here.



  5. WabiSabi says:

    Oh I love a good poetic rant!! Well said Viv!


  6. daphnepurpus says:

    Wonderful! Great use of the words!

    My sister once ran for office in the small town where she lived. Her anticipation was infectious until two days before the election when her opponent used every dirty political trick to defeat her, including outright lies. She never speaks of that incident. Not sure why you disparage your own voice Viv. You speak with clarity and honesty and your comment section proves you are well received and appreciated for doing so,



  8. Guy Fawkes! Remember, remember the fifth of November…. There is wisdom in your words Viv.


  9. I’ve never liked the idea of making society equal because it’s impossible and the politicians see to that (despite their assertions about caring for the little people). They carve out their own elite class and the working class is forced to become the serfs and minions.
