THE ELEPHANTS ARE LOOSE
by Leslie Clark
The elephants are loose in Washington, D.C.
throwing insane words around in confused morality.
Forgetting that their job is to represent all of us
they trample the Constitution, pound podiums, and fuss.
They denigrate all women,
attack the nationís healthcare
and much of our liberty.
But weíre doing the work of Jesus, some facetiously proclaim
when actually their focus is on playing their own game.
The religious right and influence tragically at large
onward puppet soldiers, into fruitless battle charge.
Now the most obnoxious of all
has become the head of state.
Chosen by the gullible,
I fear for the nationís fate.
While itís very true a donkey or two has proven to be an ass
Elephants have no right to believe their word is the last.
Truly disgusting politics, everyone will suffer.
Letís vote out right wing zealots. Take care of one another.
