Politicians Eternal Nemesis

Politicians Eternal Nemesis

Governments claim the High Ground
Representing themselves as beyond reproach
Every Act and Action trivial or profound
Guides towards the Nirvana they never approach
Opposition is always the opposition voice
Republic always needs to be divided
Yesterdays’ opposition todays’ only choice
Justice they bring later to deride
Offices and Departments always remain
Hubris of the Minister changes when government is lost
Nemesis in opposition until all power again to claim
Opposing all even the past self the cost
‘twas once their policy and right to sell
Frequently destroying what they once did build
Laws rewritten to defeat their own in Hell
Assassins of their own Law in every amended bill
Human Rights erased from papers they did write
Everyone is no longer as equal as they
Respect gone for those sacrificed in fight
Total disregard for lives fallen for who we pray
Yesterdays’ Human Rights were all now rewritten by a politicians call.
