I am David; hear me as I vote.

 

My emotions are mixed and high

 

in a day when i am feeling their gloat.

 

I  must be allowed to ask why.


 

What am i to do when governments lie

 

about what it takes to live and grow?

 

When what i say makes me a bad guy.

 

Is society better off watching a tv hoe?


 

Is it my responsibility to save all them

 

when the majority does nothing to help?

 

Leaving a strain on me; I must condemn

 

and show my disdain but can only yelp.


 

I am not a wealthy person in life

 

but feel the need for my frustration.

 

As I see money create this strife;

 

fearing the day of my castration.


 

The land of the free is said to me

 

when they need to show compassion.

 

Yet the rhetoric is fading as i disagree

 

with the direction they say is in fashion.

Whatever happened to our national pride?

 

In a time when their anger is contrived

 

to fit the needs of the politicians who divide.

 

Leaving rational thought or common sense deprived.


 

So as i speak as david in this little rant;

 

I believe my thoughts about the status quo

 

leaves term limits the solution to supplant

 

the current leaders from their little tableau.
