Leaders

8 Comments

leaders are needed

to lead from the front

doing their best for all mankind

but money is power

and power is god

calling the shots

and telling what’s what

promoting relations

and friends to the top

crony-ism thrives

there’s (dis)honour among thieves

elections are due

to be held next year

and will changes occur

in the voting majority

or will they follow the leader

like sheep to the slaughter

it remains to be seen

if the mass has matured

and is aware of the position

but really don’t care…

  3. ah you call it like it is…the people asked for a king and in getting it realized how much they did not want it…but…we keep electing the same again and again…and if we are honest part of it is because we have accepted that we have the right to vote…for whoever they put in front of us…and no one else…

    • Ugh, puppets, dancing to their tune… and they call it ‘democracy’. If it is, it is quite unrecognisable! The joke’s on us, that’s for sure, and they know just how to manipulate their supporters…

  4. I’m not familiar with your political system in S.A. Denise, but I would venture a guess that is similar in nature to ours here in the U.S. in that most of the voting populace are of the “my party” right or wrong mindset, which so infuriates anyone with an independent spirit and an open mind who is capable of deciding what is best for themselves and their family and of course, their country..Ahhh, how I hate politics and politicians.
