“We all have a responsibility to protect endangered species ….” Loretta Lynch

Politicians Are Whores

I blame the miners and
the developers, 
who are miners of sorts,
stripping the earth,
destroying habitat and species 
in their path 
for a few dollars and 
a cheap facade,
but the most loathsome of all
are the devil's spawn,
the silver tongued,
silk clad,
legislators who
ignore the science,
who laugh at any dire warning,
who'd sell their own mother,
(wait, they already have),
these elected smoke screens of decency
are but the truest whores,
always fucking nature over
and enjoying their post coital cigars.

  1. I don’t disagree with you are all, but hopefully whores at least give value for services rendered. 😉
