In Power


In Power
Because they don’t have opinions and don’t have any ideas,
They’re selected, endorsed, and elected. That’s how it has been now for years.
Manicured and well presented, they play out their role on the stage,
Working hard to protect the wellbeing of those few who just pay their wage.

Smooth and polished and handsome, with the face of a movie star,
They rehearse every word that’s been scripted. That’s what politicians now are.
Overseeing their wide dominions, they allay the public’s worst fears,
Can’t afford to have any opinions, and dare not have any ideas.
