What are the politicians up to?

Did you see those tiny boats?

I'd never board one.

Silly people

Trusting in a dinghy.

Rights, they are taking our rights!

All they want are our benefits,

Coming for our jobs,

Tearing our nation down.

I don't know what politicians are doing.

Now I'm distracted by social racism.

    This is sadly, so true. Another pointed and thought-provoking poem. Great challenge entry, hon!
