Politician

Swimming in urine, wallowing in excriment;
Debating morality, discussing progress,
Championing values,
Making money, getting attention,
Amassing power, exercising influence.


With a straight face and sense of gravitas,
Careful not to smirk in front of a camera on close-up,
Choosing words judiciously into the voracious mic,
Smiling sincerely, looking you in the eye,
With a firm handshake, pressing the flesh;
Swimming in excriment, wallowing in urine.
