the lame game

Posted on

this is another odd one.  more semi coherent rhyming stuff with poli/sci overtones and a bit of the good book tossed in just for good measure.  i’ll try to avoid this stuff in the future.  notice i said, try.

i used to really love politics.
it was at one time my mien. 
i’ve been down this road before. 
maybe you remember maybe you don’t. 
for those that don’t
i don’t any more.

yeah, i’ve changed my format.
the writing is the same.
the thoughts are the same.
it’s just like the same.
capice?

the problem with politics
is the same as well.
rant.  rave.
scream into the
sad lonely night.
it remains the same
nothing ever changes.

there is no change.
there really can’t be.
real change is is impossible.

say what?
yeah, fraid so.
the more things plod.
the more i want to nod.

it’s just some other sod
left over
left leaning
left wanting.

there are things beyond us
there were things
written long ago
who’s time has come.

scoff
bluster
full of sound and fury
he’s a bigot
mental midget.

yeah, maybe so
but i don’t
think so.
even so the status quo
is pretty much retro.

rant
and
rave
fine
it’s
all
the
same
game
life
is
lame
we
are
all
to
blame.
the song remains
the same.
time just gets
