Ode to Politicians

by SueQ

Hissing, spitting, fighting cats,
republicans and democrats,
hammering and building walls
constructing them thick, strong, and tall.

Excluding those who disagree
believing that you will be free.
Why don’t you put your mallets down?
Open your eyes and look around.

Absorb the diversity!
How boring our earth would be
if we thought and believed the same!
Stop all of your shifting blame!

Learn the skill of mediation;
better your communication!
Bury the hatchet, take up your tea;
learn to politely disagree!
