Tis The Season

Inspired by Moonwashed Weekly Prompt – Celestial &
Reena’s Exploration Challenge #254 – Politico

every year, the same spiels
the politico aiming for celestial status
trying to come off better than the opponents
while smearing the other for their lead
showing support for those they disdain
those they allegedly will stand for
knowing they can’t win without them
vilely begging for votes
and trading favors for money
the ill-gotten gains
mean more to them than actual representation

will it ever change?

  1. Excellent observations, Susi! How unfortunate that those in politics think only of themselves. I often wonder if they understand why they were elected and that is to represent citizens and the betterment of life for all.

    1. I think so do but obviously there are a lot who are more about enriching themselves than doing their jobs. And those are the ones who’ve forgotten it’ supposed to be about “public service.” Thank you, Eugenia!


  2. I visited Mt Rushmore for the first time last week. Though the work the chiselers and sculptors put into it (and so many died doing so) I found to be astounding; the most beautiful and ongoing mountain relief and story is not far from there; the relief of an imagined likeness of Chief Crazy Horse mounted on his stead. That was moving as is his story. 🏔

      1. And I can understand that. The history of relations with the Indian Nations has been horrible. I remember when I was a teenager and watching a movie called “Soldier Blue,” I was so angered after I learned more about that story as well as other things not taught in our school.
