The political pendulum swings

It swings from left to right.

There are plenty in the middle

That takes no part in their riddle

And would like to call it a night.


So the voters are easily swayed

Their thought processes delayed

By the emotional jibber-jabber

That says that it doesn't matter

When the heart of a party becomes a spade.


The Right embraces the Fascists

And the left sides with Commies

So Centralists become confused

With little white lies, then verbally abused

By both party's Dictatorial Cronies.


Is it no wonder, the plight of Democracy?

The left and the right spewing hypocrisy.

They wave their flags and beat on their drums,

Promise us banquets then serve up crumbs,

At the rally's where only the blind can see.


You can hear them screaming in symphony,

"Be free, Vote for me, Vote for me!

I am the one to right this tree!

I am the one to set you free!

Vote for me, Vote for me, Vote for me!"
