A Voters Lament

Republicans and Democrats
Agree to disagree
Politically they're bureaucrats

We know they just aspire to
Winning the elections
We might admire one or two
But, most should get rejections

They hope to be our nominees
And join the ruling class
And drown us with their guarantees
Which never come to pass

Giving speeches, so convincing
With facts that they revise
Have men of good will wincing
Besmirched by all their lies

Politicians, left and right
Forgo those aspirations
We citizens would so delight
In your finding new vocations
