You call it democracy
But in fact it is a mockery
For whoever is elected
Is already pre-selected
Sifted through a sneaky net
Of stinky bribery and threat
Your power and fame so delectable
Leaves ninety-and-nine of us still sceptical
So anonymously we strive to preserve
What forthcoming generations deserve
Your flak-suited minions clobber us
Yet we shall in time emerge unanimous
This is a “Three Word Wednesday” contribution.
Seed words: “Bribery”, “Clobber”, “Skeptical”.
