it's the politics
of the country clubs
the Armani suits
with the racial snubs
a chardonnay whine
in the trendy pubs
it's the politics
of the country clubs

it's the politics
of the just because
of the almost beens
but the never was
handing out lies
like they're Santa Claus
while sending our bombs
to the land of Oz

it's the politics
of the working man
see it in his eyes
see it on his hands
getting through the day
are his only plans
it's the politics
of the working man

it's the politics
of whatever you make
if they don't like it
let em' eat cake
I'll get what I want
and take what I take
it's the politics
of whatever you make

it's the politics
of whatever they said
give us this day
and our daily bread
forsake all the living
and forget about the dead
it's the politics
of whatever they said

it's the politics
of the almost beens
forgive us oh Lord
of our daily sins
let the children play
in the garbage bins
it's the politics
of the he who wins

It’s the politics,
Never the justice,
They bring down the gavel,
and they’ll never trust us.

It’s the politics,
but it’s not about truth,
protecting the elderly,
or guiding our youth…

It’s the politics,
and the man of the hour
doesn’t care about you—
he cares about power.

@goodboy - yes it is, and getting stranger all the time. (watch out for the zombie apocalypse, that's bound to be right around the corner),

@Justjanie - thank you for the "profound." I think we are both humanitarian, no matter our political views. thanks for the comments, much appreciated.

Very profound. Excellent as usual. I was just reading about the refugees, in Paris today. So many children involved, its heartbreaking. I am not political, I'm a humanitarian.... Believing we are all fruit of the same vine. But there are so many other forces at work, that people forget we are related.
