Politicians And Us

It's difficult believing what politicians say
because they contradict themselves quite often
saying tomorrow different what they said today.

They will promise to fulfill all our dreams
make us feel our wishes are their command
promises of politicians have identical rings.

I hope neither candidate says 'read my lips'
'no new taxes,' like a past candidate once said
From politician lips often false promises slips.

Politicians like to say they have the perfect plan
but not the first one says what their plan might be
Hopefully, in November we'll elect the best man.
