POLITICIANS

POLITICIANS - Maureen Clifford © The #ScribblyBark Poet

Thou addle pated jester prancing there on centre stage
spitting your venom outward in a blustering show of rage
out there in the colonies, far from our verdant shores
where men were sent for felonies - they bred - you are the spore.

Thou artless flap-mouthed varlot - pray tell of what you speak -
haranguing the helpless, intimidating the weak.
You're a jarring fustilarian, a maggot-pie, or worse,
who holds high place. Oh woe is me. A veritable curse.

Thou stands before us, paunchy, surly, roguish and unmuzzled
the world it seems is baffled - alas most folks are just puzzled
by thy hasty-witted comments, by thy rough hewn bonhomie
but will you the goods deliver - the world waits. We've yet to see.

'Twould indeed be good - consider if you will this errant thought,
were you, when disassembling a venomed speech, quite fraught
with ill-nurtured grace, spur-galled asides - to that you call unjust...
remember the whole world watches - methinks thou protests too much.

Giving old Will a run for his money in the insults department, Maureen!

I seem to remember his plays were full of fruity put-downs ... "thou dost offend my eyes" etc.

Whenever I hear our politicians attacking each other verbally I am reminded that in some countries they attack each other physically. Then there are countries that don't really even have politicians at all...

Just about describes any Politician I reckon Maureen, but you were a little bit too restrained I thought.
