Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: amusing, deeply, elastic.
They find the game is amusing—
To wedge, divide and win.
Our leaders would have us believe
Their cold and heartless spin.
While the tactics they are using
Are wearing a little thin,
Few wear their hearts upon their sleeve,
They’re men of straw and tin.
Their responses are elastic,
To sell the party’s tricks.
Deeply we know we have been fooled
But still the bullshit sticks.
The pains of the world are drastic,
With much we need to fix.
So how have we come to be ruled
By such heartless, bloody pricks?
