Bobbleheads and Lemmings

(A Satirical Commentary on Politicians)

“Reality Poetry”

 

Long ago and far away, I may have…with the best of intentions begun my story,

Until I found a more advantageous path…and sold my soul for money, fame, and glory.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

I want to get ahead and am looking for support…so; I tell people what they want to hear,

Then, just as expected… Bobbleheads and Lemmings fall prey…believe me, follow, applaud, and cheer!

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Like a band collects groupies and actors gather fans…I also know just how to “work a crowd”,

I will use any strategy I can…to ensure Bobbleheads and Lemmings are wooed and wowed.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Donations are integral to further my career; it costs bucks to post the negative ad,

I must belittle all the other candidates…if Bobbleheads and Lemmings are to be had!

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

The constitution stipulates…”separation of church and state”…but, that doesn’t bother me a lick,

To get more Bobbleheads and Lemmings aboard my bandwagon…I use any line and every trick.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

My personal beliefs regarding women’s issues and when the “unborn” should be considered life that’s viable,

May suit pious Bobbleheads and Lemmings…even though scientists’ and doctors’ input should be more reliable.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

How incongruous it is…that I should proclaim who deserves the right to love, marry, have, and raise children,

As I protest BIG Government’s involvement in peoples’ lives; yet, Bobbleheads and Lemmings back me again!

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Educational issues…I vow to fix…albeit, I actually have no clue…as what to do,

Given opportunities… teachers could right the wrongs…but, Bobbleheads and Lemmings don’t need that point of view.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

I persistently tout Charter and Virtual Schools…as what we need to add rigor and stir-up competition,

Bobbleheads and Lemmings can later discover…professed success was a distorted figment of my ambition.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

I continue to promote HMO’s…insuring Execs get rich…as REAL people’s health care gets whittled away,

But, politicians know…Congress is the place one has to be …if excellent “medical” care is desired today!

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Pensions for underpaid public service employees I choose to exploit; so, undermine and attack.

With a nod from Bobbleheads and Lemmings…I know my “NO social conscience” stance is headed down the right track.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

My tax cut pledge (no matter how minute)…makes Bobbleheads and Lemmings believe I am altruistic,

Once I’m IN…big business and politicians get the breaks via loopholes; it’s the old bait and switch trick.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Personal ego, success, status, and the almighty dollar (in my self-serving pocket)…is what my run’s all about,

I am the master of delusion…who lures Bobbleheads and Lemmings and says “whatever” to ensure they remain devout!

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Yes, Praise the Lord for I am blessed…to have Bobbleheads and Lemmings facilitating my arrogance and me,

As I spew empty promises about jobs and bright futures…”ordinary citizens” shall not likely see!

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Bobbleheads and Lemmings serve a purpose until MY goal’s achieved …and “super-PAC” payback inescapably, comes due,

Cronyism, Nepotism, and Favoritism trump credentials…when time to dispense contracts or choose a crew.

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

The good and welfare of the general public is long forgotten once I’ve been elected…once I’ve won MY race,

Those loyal Bobbleheads and Lemmings may join the naysayers…and then, acclaim that I am indeed, quite the disgrace!

 

Clap and cheer…as long and loud as you possibly can,

I dupe you into believing and being my fan!

Being savvy and shrewd is surely part of my plan,

You can’t really trust me….I am a POLITICIAN!

 

Wake up and smell the coffee…toss the crude and toxic coca tea…and be neither a Bobblehead nor Lemming any longer,

See past the façades and political shams…demand honesty…and as an informed majority…vote wiser and stronger!

 

Clap and cheer for reality…as long and loud as you possibly can,

No more duping Bobbleheads and Lemmings…no more being a fan!

Savvy and shrewd can no longer be permitted as part of any plan,

Honesty and true integrity must be demanded from every POLITICIAN!

 

 

 

I AM ONLY A TEACHER

 

(A Satirical Commentary)

 

“Reality Poetry”

 

I don’t have a star on the illustrious, “Hollywood Walk of Fame”,

I don’t have a reality show; whereby, everyone knows my name.

I don’t have a prestigious award like an Emmy, Oscar, or Grammy,

I don’t have notoriety for doing something slimy or clammy.

I am only a teacher, who genuinely cares about children and looks out for their welfare,

I am only a teacher, who believes in public education and that it needs its

fair share!

I am only a teacher, whose profession is being undermined and that’s a crying shame,

I am only a teacher, who’s decided it’s time to stand up to bullying and displaced blame!

I am only a teacher, who’s sick and tired of the drivel politicians have spewed,

I am only a teacher, who’s had enough of politicians who are senseless and rude!

I am only a teacher, who’s sick and tired of the ulterior motives of politicians,

I am only a teacher, who’s had enough of their personal agendas and ambitions!

I am only a teacher, who’s well educated and has earned diplomas and degrees through much hard work,

I am only a teacher, whose salary has been meager; but could at least, depend on a pension perk!

I am only a teacher, who’s jumped through hoops and has taught children against all odds,

I am only a teacher, who’s not asking for more than a bit of respect and some positive nods!

I am only a teacher, who’s cared enough about kids to stick around even when times got tough,

I am only a teacher, who’s in a state of despair and thinks that

enough is more than enough!

I am only a teacher, whose heart is breaking; as, politicians make self-serving decisions,

I am only a teacher, who’s had it with unfounded, egomaniacal babble and visions!

I don’t have dreams about striking in rich in this profession; formerly, known as

teaching,

I don’t have to and won’t apologize for saying, “Isn’t it time for some impeaching?”

I don’t have to be a victim and simply take the abuse that this system is shoveling out,

I do believe the “big business” of corruption, is what slick new legislative moves…are about!

I am only a teacher!
