Politics In Motion

The government takes your money
Before you ever get it
If you think they’ll give it back
You can just forget it.

They can tell you what to do
With everything you own
If you don’t think they can
You just try to think on your own.

They take your money and give it away
To somebody you don’t even know
Probably another country
With evil seeds to sow.

They have taken away your freedoms
So slowly most people don’t even know
That you can’t pray out loud where you won’t to
Without offending someone’s ego.

They have taken God out of almost everything
They have even taken Christ out of Christmas
What’s next to go if you want to know
They will tell you it’s none of your business.

They can’t get a budget passed
But they can give themselves a raise.
Everything else just sits there waiting
And the public they betray.

If I’m not politically correct
Then that’s okay with me
I haven’t seen a politician yet
With whom I could agree.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
