The World We Create

What motivates a politician?
The greed to rise to the top
and be the determinant
of people's destiny?
To do good to the people
and the polity?
Or to make billions
when millions no longer satisfy?

How easily people fall prey
because they cannot take hold
of their own lives!

We are all prey to our small vices,
which all add up
and make us all a debtor.

We then look up for a messiah;
and have already fallen in a trap.
The media, the gossip,
the scandals, the banalities,
the accusations.

Then we make our own frankensteins.
The politics, the politicians.
The war of the words.
The war with arms.
Murder. Plunder. Annihilations.
And we have our world,
the world every generation sees.
