An Honest Politician

.
The voters now are dumber
Than those who came before.
And every reelection
They prove it even more.
 .
What with their IQs falling
The herd came out to vote,
And kept me here in office:
Their congressman of note.
 .
With ever better margins
They sent me back again,
To regulate the country
With other lesser men.
 .
For all my time in Congress,
And every year I served,
Those mindless district voters
Received what they deserved.
 .
But now as I retire
I find that I am free,
To call the voters stupid
For reelecting 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.

  1. “For all my time in Congress,

    Now, that makes you feel real good about democracy. Unfortunately, the man is right.
