What remains

With moneyed words
Of straight talk (seeming)
Honeyed threats
And claims absurd
The scheming herdsmen
Hawk nefarious fayre
Of crony-dreamed agenda:

Our complete surrender
To Old TINA,
Wheel of phoney status quo.

Oh, strip away the rhetoric
Of well-connected bogey men
And opportunist populists
Of vanity’s expedience;
And quit the lazy parrot spiel
And déjà vu of petty zeal
And what remains
But really:

What do you think?
How do you feel?
