#2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge

Day 19 19.11.22

Prompt: Write a poem about The Myth of [blank]

The Myth Of The Good Politician 

My vote, my vote
for a good politician,
morally outraged,
definitely sincere,
a revolutionary,
savvy intellectual,
empathic leader,
caring (of course),
historic voice,
collaborative player,
a legend,
there's bound to be one out there
I just haven't found them yet,
but if you know where they are,
please let me know so that 
I can pinch their face and
make sure they're real.

    The ending made me laugh. Is it ever possible to remain true to one’s morals and run for politics?

    If you do please tell me too – I think it is more reminiscent of the unicorn
