Spitting cobra’s

They do politics in triplicate
a syndicate
three card tricksters,
politicians are mathematicians
they fix the odds and the odds are
we’re fucked the minute we vote
for them.

the alternative could be anarchy
and that’d suit me
because anarchists help the aged
don’t they?

I’m in two minds which is a bit of a bind
for the people who live in them
multiple personalities
somewhat like political
but friendlier,
