A Politician’s Creed

by joetwo

Good hair is important

With teeth so white they beam

And it would be an asset if

Folks can’t grasp what you mean


Each line you speak’s a sound bite

A policy a phrase

Fool them all with so much words

It leaves them in a daze


Your past can be your downfall

So hide it in plain sight

If you can be unmemorable

Then you’ll get on all right


Memories a fickle thing

If you promise the Earth

You can get the best of jobs

And take all of it’s worth


A politician’s job’s quite fun

It’s quite simple to do

Just acts like you care for folks

Even if it’s not true
