Politics starts with P
Often politics stars with P
Political Posturing has twice as much P
The former Pee-Resident really put the Pee in Politics
Thank his Pal who got him Putin office.
Pride begins with P
Prejudice begins with P
Petulance and Pestilence
And Putrid and Pathetic
Did I mention Putin and Putin’s Puppet?
Perhaps, we the People ought to ban the letter P.
Phase out Paranoia and
Purge Pathetic Pain and Pelf.
Purloin the letter P.
Proscribe it from the alphabet!
It seems the perfect plan!
But can we stand to ban the plum?
Dare we deign to eat no peach?
Would we desire a pleasureless life?
Would endless strife surpass our Peace?
But then a thought occurs to me:
What if banning letter P
Doesn’t even impact what is real?
It’s just a game to make us squeal.
Imagine folks who lie
And ban the naming of that lie.
Imagine folks who beat
And steal your winter wheat.
To get away with crime,
More than just one at a time.
Easier just to break all law.
Do it once & hide the flaw.
Now your gang can really go to town!
Turn it all — all upside down!
And if you are blind enough to think
Capitol attack is peachy pink.
Could never come your way
Well, guess again, I say.
There will be so many deaths
It will take away your breath
The label’s not the thing
Wherein we’ll catch the king.
What happens in our life
Determines peace or strife.
Here’s the path to paradise:
Garden, love and plant a pine.
Be sort of nice; not blind of mind;
Being kind works many a time.
We will paradize our place.
And love our human race.
The only “them” that matters is all of us
“It is in our very nature
To improve our very nature.”
