The Politician

By Marc Leavitt of Marc Leavitt's Blog

Every slippery politician
Has a partisan position,
But he’ll soften it with euphemism
To hide his rabid party-ism.

He’ll sweet-talk voters very well
To sell stuff that he’s told to sell,
And he’ll strive to gain affection,
Always seeking re-election.

His wealthy masters let him know
Without their cash, he’d have to go,
And he parrots what they taught him;
Since he’s owned by those who bought him.
