638 : Mandate? Blind Date!

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were Brief, Expose and Insist.

Mandate?  Blind date!

It was lost, more than being won,
A voter’s stern protest.
Now they insist they have a mandate
And expose their hairy chests,
And scare the people living there.
Too late, they recoil in disbelief.

The marriage — an arranged one,
The honeymoon was brief.

  1. And that self-satisfied grin frightens me. So very much.
    Mandate is a word which I have grown to dislike intensely. No, sunshine, you didn't get a mandate to do everything just as you want it done with no discussion. Or information. Or heaven forbid, consultation. Sigh.

  2. reminds me of agent Smith from the Matrix. ~

  3. Things will get a lot worse....I just hate knowing everything:)

  4. We are in trouble as neither major party leader can speak coherently and convincingly to the public. This is so important when you are telling lies.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
