A Poem to the Editor

Politicians, one and all,

Listen to this wake-up call:

Legislators overstep contracts with voters!

Morality corrects itself, pompous doters!

Substances smoked, driving while drunk, couplings gone wild.

NON-ISSUES hammered–yet comparatively mild.

Wars rage!  Education stalls!  Economies fail!

Newspapers fold, postal systems teeter, banks bail.

Avoid harsh judgment of the masses’ “behavior”.

Tend to your  knitting.  Be a “pol”–not a savior.

Remember, not one of you is above reproach.

Abandon “First-Class” seats; come fly WITH us in “coach”!
