Smile and Wave

Waving zealots
good morning signs, good morning smiles
furiously waving away their lies
handkerchief hands turn words to dust
granules scatter all over the ground

particle questions
too hard to answer
walked into to the soil and twisted
this landscape we love, is to them
only a magical carpet of money
that allows them to fly so high

smile and wave…smile and wave
they believe their lies
these glorious gods of the smile and wave
conjuror’s of spin
who smile, shake your hand then wave you away

ladies and gentlemen lend me your ears
and for a dollar amount I shall lend you mine
until then… we shall smile and wave…smile and wave

 

For dversepoets allegory…not sure if this exactly fits but it was the best I could do today…after this mornings…smile and wave 🙂

  1. I like to read the poem before I look at the title or tags and I have to say, you really pulled it off. Great poem for what we’re going through right now. It’s going to be a long summer here.

  2. ugh…politicians suck…they will tell you whatever you want to hear to get there and then will do whatever the highest bidder asks…its only going to get worse the closer we get to november as well…and then i hate to think of after…u really nailed this one…

  3. I don’t even want to vote tomorow. All the mayoral candidates have a degree in business or economics!! Priorities!!!! Smile and wave indeed!!

  4. Almost like an allegory on those smiley faces that Walmart uss on its ads. That’s what I see when reading your words, or a preacher glad handing himself into heaven.
