Politicians like an older computer,
Before and after the Oath……
Are they serving us or each other
It’s obvious—a little of both!
Each one has their glitches peculiar,
As do all working machines……
Support systems vary accordingly
To each politician’s schemes.
computers take on “amendments”
to serve particular needs……
politicians want to be ascendants
to do extraordinary deeds!
Why do they keep running,
Old computers and politicos alike……
‘Tis more than inner cunning
It’s power we obviously like.
makes its way whether false or true……..
some do it by obfuscation
and choices we later rue.
this old computer keeps working—
It takes me where I want to go……
Humans seeking power keep jerking
Our chain—that’s what works, you know!
