The Paper Chase

.
 .
The socialist caucus
Now running Caracas
Is on the hot seat in the polls.
The national issue?
A shortage of tissue
That common folk purchase in rolls.
 .
The problem is vivid.
The public is livid,
As price controls wipe out supply.
Now people are queuing
In hopes of accruing
A super absorbent two-ply.
.

The previous autumn
The market hit bottom,
When need far exceeded demand.
Which happens when masses
Are ruled by asses,
And finish with nothing in hand.
 .
As public opinion
Throughout the dominion
Continues its negative trend,
The socialist caucus
Now running Caracas
Says all will be well in the end.

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.
