We The People

Sinful indulgence at the cost
of we the people
Blind to your ability to bait
and switch with each cast
of the rod, fishing for votes

Speaches filled with humor
and promises left unfulfilled
will we the people never learn
spinning the bottle to elect
bringing forth the same outcome

Denial is a pretty blanket in
which to hide ignorance
We the people can no longer
blame bureaucrats for our dismay

when we put the welcome mat out

when we hide in black holes of self pity

Tough subject but brilliantly composed!
