Governments (poem)



I think that I shall never see

A government that is tax free

A senator that never lies

or rumours on their own that die

A government that lends a hand

and writes your debts in flowing sand

A government with open arms

and wishes all the earth no harm

with politicians who are wise

or act upon the people’s cries

A dreamer like me always wishes

for a nation free of issues.
