Mean Manifestos On Our Walls

Hear them blare out of riotous streets
Propagandas gift-wrapped in agendas
Glued o’er last poll’s forgotten tweets
Yet again to dupe voters enmasse!

They ain’t promises which are to be kept
Politicians know it all too well
Their faith is neither right nor left
Just any damn thing which makes them sell!

Heat up bazaars of cold conquests
In the din of sordid shibboleths
Like whores from posters placing bets
On every contest holding breaths!

These fights of lunacy are the rites of democracy
Our bondage to political protocols
Ugly graffiti of holy hypocrisy
Mean Manifestos On Our Walls!
