Overhypage

One politician, colored blue,
Across the aisle a different hue, 
 
Colored red, in case you're blind
Dropped out of school, I think you'll find
 
Leftover relics from a long-ago age,
They preen and glower in Trumped-up rage
 
I can't help but hear them, try as I not,
To not impale my T. V. takes all I've got
 
One law, two laws, three laws and four,
Rammed down out throats, rotten to the core
 
The will of the people, that's you and me
Democracy be damned, embrace theocracy
 
It's ignored in a spasm of partisan betrayal
Self-serving deevies, pulled without fail
 
Putting their wants ahead of good for the nation,
Scream accusations not based in foundation
 
Yet so desperate are some to believe these lies,
They gobble them up when no truth doth apply
 
Rabid wolves answering their dog-whistle creed, 
To vilify the other side is their go-to need
