In politics everyone carries a sign saying hurray for our side. It wasn't our fault it was the other guys. Don't believe my opponent... He lies.

This is the best political poem I’ve yet to read! I totally agree. Wouldn’t it be nice if it were impossible for a political official to lie? Thanks for sharing this. Kay-Ren

TJ, You're right he lies..... It's a crap shoot. They show only what they want us to know and think. Us voters can only pray for divine guidance. right on and so forth. dellena

That's right TJ! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Politics. You either land on one side or you straddle the fence. The thing about elections is that, no ONE candidate is the one percent best. In actuality, I feel as thought I'm forced to vote for the lesser of two evils this year. However, I will consider all of the issues and vote for the candidate who I feel loves people the most and himself or his image less (than the other candidate). Leadership is all about serving, not being self serving. I'm glad you came along with this and kept my fire burning. Thanks for sharing it. It's a light, but tight read to post during a very important time. Thanks, and great poem. Latorial

I like this. Brief, direct, simple, but oh so accurate. Funny too. It totally summed up my thoughts on the subject far better than I could, in a hundred less words. Bravo. Some poems make you think, this one does your thining for you...

Dear Daniel, I really like the "who's pointing the finger at who" concept of this poem. In just a few lines, you send a huge message which takes a quality of talent that I can appreciate. Your poem is true and teters on the humourous side as well. I love the ending - he lies, simple but projects the message immensely. I enjoyed your poem, very well done. Sincerely, DeniMari

Daniel--There's nothing complicated about this: plain language, straight forward, and honest as the day is long. To my recollection the political arena has always been as you've stated. Moreover, these characteristics probably won't change. Some- body once said, "It's the nature of the beast." Thanks for reminding us. TLW

Hi Daniel. You're right, you know. It's all a matter of perspective. But in the mean time who do we believe? None of them, because they're all a bunch of damn liars! I reccomend adding a period at the end of line 4 and capping "It" in line 5. I like the way you capped all the letters in the title as though you're shouting. And I like the rhyme of lies/guys. Thanks for such honesty. Blessings, Jennifer

The scourge of modern living is political drama, that serves no HIGH purpose in the end. You carry my sentiments exactly, how can everyone be wrong. Can't be, and where does truth get chopped up and shared. Hmmmm. Timely poem, even from my Canadian perspective. Robert
