REALLY?

by John Yeo
~
Vote for me and I’ll be there for you
Dependable, honest, reliable, true,
Voracious, totally telling the facts
Without pretension.
~
Honestly, never dishonest.
My three year old believes in me,
Fairies, goblins, witches and elves,
Even Father Christmas.
~
Dependable, honest, reliable, true,
Without pretension.
Our NHS, education, transport, too,
Without invention.
~

My drug of choice is a happy pill,
Take one three times a day.
You will feel better, I know you will
If you cast a vote for me.
~

Honesty is a purple flowering plant,
The pods make for decoration.
The ideal political reflection,
Colourful, decorative, honest, and true?
~
