Feign To Lead Us

Politics, Political, Election, Letters

Who are these who would feign to lead us,

Letting tastes of power go to their heads?

Spouting policies just to please us,

But doing asinine things instead

They seek a moment – of fame in the sun

Before being plunged into the obscurity

From which they had come

Some remain deluded – thinking they are God’s gift

Drooling after the attention, for which they exist

Should we not show them pity, for their sad vanity?
