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.

each administration

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!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
