Old-world women gossip

Disgorging air and candy floss,

Talking, talking, talking.

Just trumpery coming across,

Irrational chatter

mindless natter

Suffrage, forgotten, such a loss.

Old-world men jabber

As they prop up the local bar,

Bullshit bullshit bullshit.

Taking ignorance too far.

Incoherent prattle

Constant cackle.

Franchised rights, or another jar?

Politicians shouting

Across the hallowed debating floor,

Gabfest, gabfest, gabfest

Does anyone listen anymore?

Electorate despised

We’re disenfranchised,

While ill-disposed ministers roar.

Media hustling

Hurling cliches and platitudes

Babble, babble, babble,

Cradling their own biased attitudes

Tempers wearing thin

Hosts inwardly grin

As they stir up political feuds,
