If Corruption Is Your Ally

If corruption is your ally

Then hold it close

For when the world knows

Of your backdoor deals

It will not forgive

Or forget

That the one focus

Was the money you could get

So don’t wish any hope

Upon an empty grave

You have been corrupted

And will be found

Someday

Again to The End

Again it was a challenge

But when is it not

A full born

Challenge to run

To walk

To try again and again

So hope is the only way

One increment at a time

There was a time

When it all fell back on my shoulders

When I was young

But in age and in time

I will try again

Lamentable

It was a mistake

To hope for change

To vote for change

To think change

Was one step away

Rather it is a way

Of life

And thinking

Living and breathing

We can’t just hope

We can’t just vote

We must live

We must strive

Push into the future

Our good values

Rather than die

On the limb of

Hope
