Dear Legislator


Poesy plus Polemics

dear legislator,

dodgy character qualifies you
under tenebrous rubric
elections confer upon lesser of evils
anointing your priesthood
with derelict duties you hide under robes
where you also hang knives
that cut constant campaigns
in the moribund flesh
of unworthy opponents
your siblings who
speak the same doublespeak
learned in the crib from the lullabies
droned by lubricious duplicitous
partisan parents who stroked your esteem
with fat fingers of power and pride
in your fecklessness
knowing electorates ask for so little
and never get more than they ask for

regretfully yours, posterity
