Communique Frozen.....

Communique Frozen...

Telephone lines covered in ice,
communications all frozen out.
People twittering, some not nice,
presidential hair lip starts to pout.

An election in the offing, poor show,
so many hours spent doting or voting.
Do we really need stupidity tied in a bow,
then five misspent years simply gloating.

These the candidates our very own,
nothing but the best in town or not.
Fretting, betting all deeds are sown,
goons to make sure they’re hot to trot.

The white house is in melt down,
their chief is all tweets and twiddles.
It’s not his fault he’s seen as a clown,
a country squirms as he still fiddles.

Let’s get to it go on pick your side,
red or blue both promising much.
Couple of years they’ll begin to slide,
it’s not their fault we’re an easy touch.

Campaigns run by media pros,
not ordinary folks like you or I.
Honesty among thieves god knows,
not this lot they’re paid to lie.

Wrap the people’s needs up like gifts,
shove back hard on rhetorical sins.
Prepare to change if the mood shifts,
after all who cares as long as we wins.

Win for the people don’t be a fool,
we want power to help pay our debt.
Our paymasters are from an old school,
no, they haven’t given us the price yet.

Hey ho as long as we have power,
we’ll let the clowns who vote pay.
We shall be safe in an ivory white tower,
as long as the corporates are allowed
to prey.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Words that do not resonate get lost in an ugly few months, and all leaders employ media hard noses to steal a smile or a mile....

the money does the talking. Yes, it is all about the money. I have friends and family that love Trump because the economy is up, unemployment is down and the corporations are making more money than ever! They don't seem to understand that we are judged by the rest of the world, by our leader. The media is as much to blame as our elected officials! There is always
a network that is willing to make outrageous statements or twist things in order to make a story. Too bad, that they can't report the news and let it go at that. Good story telling here. ~ Gee.

Thank you Gee, I watch a lot of the CNN station, can't say I know a hell of a lot about American politics but I got the basics. And we both seem to suffer ( Britain and the US ) from the same ailment, that being, we've voted in celebrities rather than good politicians. You being more fortunate than I that your president only lasts for eight years at most, ours can go on forever. Thanks again, Regards Roscoe....

you depend on can for your news.............You Do know they are the propaganda arm od the democrats party don't you? Watch fox news And can than believe something in between.

I liked the rhyme but in stanza 7 you stretched out using "wins" to maintain close rhyme which kinda ruined the effect of that stanza. I also like the abab pattern which is one I use a lot Plus your message is clear.........stan.

Thank you Stan, I do watch other news stations, the use of CNN was a deliberate ploy to have fun with republicans. Same with stanza seven and wins, was playing on Trumps childish reaction to critique. He jumps just like a scolded child when he reacts with his tweets. Never mind we have a prime minister who is the exact opposite, benny Johnson just hides from critique or rather the cons party don't let him speak until they have told him what to say. Thanks you again for your comments. Regards Roscoe....
