On My Behalf

*

On my behalf the sun doth shine;
It lights my chosen way.
On my behalf the stars will glow
In luminous array.
*
On my behalf the rain doth fall
To soften up the greens.
On my behalf the course’s crew
Has mounted its machines.
*
On my behalf the roads are built
To smooth my chosen route.
On my behalf the unions build
A car that won’t pollute.
*
On my behalf the troops are sent
To suffer, kill and die.
On my behalf their victories
Become my battle cry.
*
On my behalf the universe,
From near to apogee,
On my behalf is orbiting
Around the world – and me.
*

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
