Lying Leaders

I’m not thrilled with many these days

a lot of them are hacks,

that may hurt some feelings

but I’m just laying out the facts

Many may make promises

but rarely do they keep them

I’m writing of politicians,

It’s so hard to believe them

Don’t get on my screens,

and lie morning, noon, & evening

Doesn’t your conscience bother you,

when you go around deceiving?

Some Clarity

I wanted to say this once & for all,

just for clarity sake

I would never believe nor claim

that all accusations of racism

in modern America are fake

but the accusation has become

a political weapon these days

Unfounded in many cases

Thrown around arbitrarily

To kick mud in people’s faces

Despite what some keep howling

I’ve just never believed that it’s a systemic thing
