Where Did The Leaders Go?

Politics is a numbers game, keeping them all on a wage

A cushy reward, they know how to play

Are they all the same?

There’s no true leader just a swing board

A clapometer where decisions are made based on popularity

A clear reflection on the lack of clarity

Where political agendas align with benefactors

Feeding the propaganda coffers

Where news broadcasts make no sense,

Short on facts, less content

Camera phones, snapchat, Instagram

Slogans present like movie trailers

With drama but little glory or story to savour

Assumptions made, Opinions aired

Just conjecture, polls and aspirators

Is there anyone who really cares?
