Political Designs

Post by bags123 » Thu Oct 02, 2008 6:13 am

Political Designs

Our freedoms are determined
by the people who define
what's included in their meaning,
as they change them line by line,
and dilute them with their scheming,
and political designs,
while screaming for solutions
to their unrepented crimes

True freedom is elusive
when we let someone decide
which direction we are leaning,
as we start the quick decline
They'll dispute that we're carreening
towards a critically hard time
Asking for more contributions
just before they all resign

Politics usually occur by accident when any great number of people live and work in close proximity.
