We're in a bad place

No longer about political party,
This is about decency, humanity
This is about us; our souls
Look in the mirror, who do you see?
What if your boss interrupted?
What if your friends lied?
What if your children pouted
When they didn't get their way,
About everything, constantly?
Would you be proud if your kids 
Behaved like him? Rude and crude
No, I would hope you raised them better
Only, he's not a six year old child,
Although it's hard to tell the difference
Democrat or Republican? No; humanity

Yes, he is an aberration all right. It sure makes feel better about living and voting in Australia, which is far from perfect. Four of our last five Prime Ministers have been ousted by their own parties. Rudd, Gillard, Abbott and Turnball. Now that's democracy (LOL).
