Douglas Polk- Two Poems


Presidents Bush and Obama,
both made of the same substance,
a mirror image of one another,
photograph and negative,
one to the other,
neither understanding,
the presidency,
about the office,
and not the man,
the people's servant,
not royalty,
neither more enlightened than the average man,
the nation's will,
not their party's,
or their own,
the guiding principle,
only in dividing a nation,
and shredding the rule of law,
leading the nation to suffer,
along with its people.


only con men causing problems,
solving nothing,
ruling from poll to poll,
the people's will,
a public relations battle,
won momentarily,
by whichever political party,
the bigger prostitute,
selling themselves and the nation's future,
to the highest bidder,
principles forgotten,
precedents ignored,
Sodom and Gomorrah on steroids.
