Politics

© 2008

Hope flies among the lies
Politicians at county fairs
Chaos breeds in times of need
Sucking out the air

American Indians had it right
We never own the land
But what we do and how we act
Determines the fate of man

Dear father of the Earth tonight
Let me listen to the four winds blow
Provide insight about wrong and right
Still my soul so I can know

Before they adopted double-speak
There was clarity to actions and deeds
Role models like Duke and Ron
Gracious men who knew how to lead

Today we have a petty pious crowd
Who take actions but don’t know why
They vote and vote, and vote again
Then cover up and lie

Dear father of the Earth tonight
Let me listen to the four winds blow
Provide insight about wrong and right
Still my soul so I can know

This year I’m told to vote for change
In which I can believe
But proven ways, not belief, is what I want
For actors on this dangerous stage

Dear father of the Earth tonight
Let me listen to the four winds blow
Provide insight about wrong and right
Still my soul so I can know
Still my soul so I can know


American elections are so full of BS that it is simply amazing. Welcome to my world.

Raised in Berkeley and Montana, I have traveled throughout the Western USA. Scenes like these are all over California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I do creating it.

    I’ll vote for the one that carries out their promises and gives everyone a years free chocolate.

  • LOL…the promises part is frightening, but count me in for the chocolate…do we get port with that?

    congrats on this piece of writing Ed …. the election process in America is so huge compared to what we have here, similar types on smaller stages … having said that it’d be nice for someone to say lets change and actually mean it …. the U.S. presidency affects a lot of countries so i hope who ever wins the race does more that the last few ….. the nod to the native Indians is excellent … i think this writing transcends the political also

    Great writing Ed…and this part…oh so true:

    American Indians had it right
    We never own the land
    But what we do and how we act
    Determines the fate of man

  • Hey ya CJ…ya…this piece was ok, but sometimes I know it wasn’t THAT ok when, after I post it, it is still stirring around inside of me…so I got off that one good stanza, but I guess I didn’t quite write whatever it is still stirring, so I have to attempt it again so I can move on….lol…you’re a writer, so I assume you know what I mean. Oh, and thank you.

    LOL – all fresh and bushy tailed! No trouble intended and Damien, like you know that I am all play at times : )

  • Hi ya Carmen…all play is good, especially if it involves port, chocolate and a fine cigar! Lol. The exchange was/is amusing! Hey, where’s Damien?
