Those Evil Politicians!

Those politicians,

They are evil, we say.

Those politicians,

They are up to no good, we say.

Those politicians,

They are so selfish, we say.

Those politicians,

They don’t care about us, we say.

But…

We are undisciplined, always late for everything…
We create scams to steal from one another…
We try to jump queues at banks…
We disobey traffic rules and regulations…
We treat our staff poorly…
We are hostile to those from tribes and religions other than ours…
We pay bribes to the police for them to do their job…
We expect to be paid bribes for doing our own jobs…
We borrow money to fund lifestyles which we cannot afford…

We, the people,
We are just like them!

Those politicians,
They are just like us…

But with much better pay.

  1. We, the people, forget that our silence and failure to speak up, makes the politician believe he has a right to lord it over us. And because they are certain of our indiscipline and warped values,politicians behave with impunity. They are a reflection of us.
