What’s wrong in politics?

Flux and change the cosmos suffer
I once heard from the philosopher
In one river thou shall not step twice
Learn the wisdom and be wise

Accepting not this theory of flux
Our ruling-leaders never quit but relax
Another opportunity to power they struggle
Despite million places they did fumble

Peaceful souls love change ever
when skeletons in their cupboard never
I then have a mighty score to settle
with politician that plays no gentle

I doubt not that the nation is in danger
where are they struggling to enter?
Are there many but not one seat in Aso Rock?
Where greedy gluttons gather to try luck

New politicians emerging; old ones refusing to quit
Despite many political demands unable to meet
Use they our stolen treasures only for campaigns
For with cash at hand, forget we quickly our pains

Hunger! Thou hast abused us enough
With thee in our midst, represent we not our stuff
When empty stomach instigate fear with warring sound
With porridge pot, our consciences, our rights they hoard

May great and good governing God guide and guard us!
