Politician Lament

Politician Lament


The Prime Minister made a statement

That he knew to be untrue

Which begged the simple question

That I’ll now put to you

“When you lie”

“Do you look to the sky?”

“To avoid divine intervention”

“Or do you lie”

“Just to hide”

“Your fear and perspiration”

“Do you believe your statements?”

“Do you know that they’ll be checked?”

“Or are you not that bothered?”

“About the lives your lies just wrecked?”
