Talking politics is a dangerous game
People are too quick to ascribe blame
And often are moved to a terrible rage
At others who are not on the same page
It is not easy to stay calm
When we know they hold us hostage in their palm
But then it was always thus
Democracy thrives on mess and muss
Some say it’s no worse than ever before
When people are angry they can’t take it any more
We have leaders we no longer trust
Then let’s throw them out.
Indeed we must.
