A Wise Word Alla Machiavelli

As we near this election date

The rhetoric’s sure to nauseate.

Pundits’ll  scream and act irate

Spewing their vitriolic hate

Convincing us the hour’s late;

“Barbarians are at the gate!”

This corruption of the third estate

Will never keep this nation great.

Demagogues and Politicians,

Pay attention to your positions.

Yelling loudly and with conviction

Will not make a fact from fiction.

And what you risk in the next election

Is a widespread citizens’ defection.
