IF POLITICIANS WERE TREES

 

If only politicians
were trees
we would have
that
much more protection;
the air
we breathe, our breeze
would be
so much freer of
corruption;
sorry, I mean, pollution....

If only politicians
were trees
we would have nothing
to fear,
we could bask in
their shade
while our children
swung
carefree from branches....

If only politicians
were trees
think how our budgets
& diets
would be balanced;
their fruit
flower, roots & leaves
could
give such rich sustenance....

And what a bonus it
would be
if we, their constituents
could
hack them down
each time
they became a nuisance....
If only politicians were trees !
