Political Games…Make for Interesting Gains? (Thought Piece / Poem)

Political games make for interesting gains. 

The people are split on this topic; the people see the despair in the system. 

The people see their only hope in the system. 

But political games, after all, make for interesting gains.

Interesting gains? Yes, interesting gains for those who play it correctly.

When a politician makes $2 million annually through a combination of his different “sponsors” or “lobbyist,” he’s made a gain

A gain, in this instance, does not mean a victory for the people. 

A gain does not mean a new bill has been passed that favors the public’s interest. No, it means something entirely different. 

A gain, for a politician, means they’ve moved up the metaphorical ladder of their chosen career.

Yes, their career. After all, the government is just another workplace.

These politicians gain interest only if they can survive long enough in the game. Because you see, if any politician doesn’t play by the rules, by their rules, they are easily replaceable. 

Authentic politicians are expandable, uninteresting, and a burden to the game. 

Why is this so? Well, because nobody is looking out for them just as they aren’t looking out for the people’s interest. 

False politicians must play, or their whole livelihood goes down the drain.

Don’t you understand?

This isn’t about you or me. This is about them. Unfortunately, it always has been.

So instead of relying on these modern-day prostitutes to help us out when we’re in our most dire straits, why don’t we just leave them on the curve at the next corner and start looking after each other? 

After all, political games make for interesting gains…

Forever in Your Debt,
