BAD APPLES AND BUFFOONS

The Sunday Muse #142.  Still embroiled in the happenings of the week.  It appears we all are!  


One side of the apple
All shiny and pristine
Is reflected in the mirror
The side that’s to be seen

The other side is hidden
Lest its true self is viewed
Onlookers are quite unaware
The apple is piteously skewed

Politicians are like apples
We often don’t see the other side
And we become the victims
Of what we see and what they hide.

  3. Surprise, they learn from used cat sales folks. Or is it vice versa? A clever piece you wrote today.
