Meet The Candidates

MEET THE CANDIDATES

You advertise yourselves as righteous
Angelic souls free from relapse
As pure as the driven snow
All alternatives worse
Don’t flatter yourselves
We see through you
We possess
A test
Brains

This is a second, even later response to a writing prompt.

Weekly Word Prompt # 4

Roll Up, Roll Up, The Circus Is In Town

ROLL UP, ROLL UP, THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN

Deafening election ballyhoo
A further relapse into insanity
Louder, louder, worse and worse
The lies … The misdirection

Like the two sides
Of the same bad coin
Turning up over and over
Heads I win, tails you lose

Like a rancid smell
In the soggy walls
And rotting floorboards
Of the Off-white House

Don’t flatter yourself
You have no real value
To the puppet masters
Who possess you

As they have none to you
The dupes who ticked your box
They’re used to tests from school
This one’s a gullibility test
