A crisis of leadership
Shakes the beliefs of the citizens
The decayed relationships
An embarrassment for the government
The citizens campaign for better management
Change is made
A star is born
Fences mended
But still the citizens worry

Politicians are politicians after all.
Thank goodness for the journalists
Who call them on their bull!!

  1. The last thing voters want after an election is to feel they have made the wrong choice and things will get worse. Count the days down!

  2. yes we always worry though don't we

  3. Absolutely - nothing more powerful than words

  4. Apt poem,especially in these times.
    But, some politicians are savvy enough to keep the journalists in their good books, tamed & in full control.
