Title: Political Debate

The politicians are out.
Watch them all parading.
They tell us what we want to hear.
So good at masquerading.

The politicians are out.
They're trained in how to stand.
They're told to say things clearly
So ten year olds can understand.

They politicians are out.
They're wearing their best suits.
They're polished and they're coiffured.
Cameron looks a beaut.

The politicians are out.
They're falling out with each other.
Now just who made that promise first?
One fabricator or the other?

The politicians are out.
We can watch them on T.V.
I think I'll press the mute button
As empty pledges all sound the same to me.
